President Muhlenfeld in the classroom 

'si write this, the brilliant colors of another Virginia autumn have almost faded, and students are 
buckling down to work on final term papers and studying for exams. The fall semester has been exceed- 
ingly full; a number of important events have engaged our students. We started the year with a visit from 
Julian Bond, chairman of the NAACP and longtime civil rights activist. At Founders' Day, we honored 
our Distinguished Alumna, Katharine Milton, and in turn heard her give a fascinating talk about her re- 
search in the Amazonian rain forest. Poet Maya Angelou came early in November; more than 1,300 peo- 
ple poured onto the campus to hear her speak. We relived the Civil War through Mary Boykin Chesnut's 
eyes in a compelling one-woman play. Each of our fall athletic teams celebrated a Vixen Spirit Day that 
was great fun — complete with popcorn, pompons, the "president's party" and lots of students cheering on 
their teams. 

In my judgment, the vitality evident on the playing fields and in Babcock Auditorium reflects the vital- 
ity in our classrooms. In this issue of your Alumnae Magazine (beginning on p.2), we focus on a topic that 
should be of utmost importance to you: excellence in teaching. Since my first trip to Sweet Briar, I have 
been impressed with the quality and achievement of this faculty. From my earliest conversations with 
them, they have wanted to talk about their teaching: what happens in their classrooms, new courses they 
would like to teach, their work with individual students, the ideas they have developed with fellow faculty 
members. I have been intrigued with the innovative ways they are incorporating the best technology and 
latest research into the classroom. 

Our new General Education Program is the result of these efforts, interweaving the best practices in lib- 
eral arts education into the fabric of Sweet Briar. First-year students have settled into the rhythm of col- 
lege life and, for the first time, begun their academic careers with one of 16 First- Year Seminars, 
interdisciplinary courses that focus both on an interesting and multifaceted topic that makes students 
think, and also on developing skills in written and oral communication and, in several cases, in quantitative 
reasoning. These seminars have added an interesting new dimension to teaching first-year students. 
Faculty are experimenting with teaching across disciplines, and many are learning ways to teach writing 
and oral presentation in disciplines that have not traditionally focused on these skills. As for students, the 
chance to dive right into an intellectually demanding college seminar is both exciting and challenging. 
Lots of first-year students have told me they can't believe how much reading they have to do! When I hear 
comments like that, I'm delighted: what better statement could we make about what will be expected of 
them, and the intellectual values of this college? 

Sweet Briar's curriculum is evolving as fast as the world is changing; you will read about a number of new 
offerings in addition to the General Education Program. A computer science major, building on our suc- 
cess in the sciences and technology, and a new Spanish/business major both will position our students to 
take their places in the forefront of tomorrow's professionals. A new minor in archaeology, buttressed this 
summer by the first Sweet Briar Field School in Archaeology, has literally enabled our students to discover 
the past for themselves. Our faculty is responsive to the educational needs of a whole new generation of 
students, and I am delighted at the level of interdepartmental brainstorming and collaboration that allows 
this to happen here. I hope this issue of the Alumnae Magazine is one you will share with a prospective 
student. It talks about the very lifeblood of the College.

Sweet Briar College Alumnae Magazine ■ Winter 1999 


by Mary Molyneux Abrams '86 

In May 1998, after two and 
a half years of intense 
research and debate, the 
Sweet Briar faculty passed an all- 
encompassing General Education 
Program. This new program — 
the first major overhaul of the 
curriculum in several decades — 
envisions a Sweet Briar education 
as a seamless process, beginning 
with Orientation and continuing 
through the senior year. All stu- 
dents will complete a set of re- 
quirements that will: 

• ensure the development of 
strong communication and 
quantitative reasoning skills, 

• help students clarify the ratio- 
nale for a strong liberal arts 

• provide a pattern for the ac- 
quisition of knowledge both 
in terms of breadth (under- 
standing broad areas of 
knowledge) and depth (the 
completion of a major), 

• engage in purposeful experi- 
ences that will enhance their 
formal learning, 

• encourage students to rou- 
tinely assess their progress, 
review their decisions, and 
align their undergraduate 
preparation with future acade- 
mic, career, and life goals. 

II the points listed above look 
familiar, it is because Sweet 
Briar's mission to provide the 
best possible liberal arts educa- 
tion for young women has not 
changed. What is new is the way 
these objectives are expressed and 
implemented across the curricu- 

Starting this year, faculty 
throughout the disciplines are 
emphasizing writing, oral com- 
munication, and quantitative rea- 
soning skills at every level. The 
Class of 2002 and every class to 
follow will be required to take 
skill-intensive courses, not only 
as first-year students, but on into 
their majors. 

not guaranteed under the old re- 

On a visit back to campus for 
Alumnae Council, Cecilia A. 
Moore '88, assistant professor of 
religious studies at the University 
ot Dayton, praised the new em- 
phasis on skills. Though she telt 
confident in her abilities through 
graduate school and beyond, she 
believes the College is right to 
update preparation in this area. 
"Technology speeds the delivery 
of information, but it does not 
change the need for thoughtful 
composition," says Cecilia. "If 
anything, the use of computers 
exposes deficiencies more quicklv. 
If you don't have solid writing, 
reasoning, and presentation skills, 
your employers are going to un- 
cover those weaknesses faster 
than they would have just 10 
years ago. On the flip side, if 
you're a capable Sweet Briar 

graduate, your strengths will be 
recognized and swiftly rewarded." 

In addition to skills, the new 
curriculum acknowledges the value 
of experiences that complement or 
amplify academic work. Self- 
assessment, independent research, 
physical activity, and completing a 
major are the main components of 
a requirement that provides needed 
time for reflection while promot- 
ing active, hands-on learning. Bv 
identitving and formalizing the 
many ways students participate in 
learning both inside and outside 
the classroom, Sweet Briar can 
work effectively to expand oppor- 
tunities in both areas. The 
College's new Spanish/business 
major, summer research program, 
and "Learning on the Land" ori- 
entation are just a few examples of 
how this initiative is taking shape. 
(This issue of the Alumnae 
Magazine covers many others.) 

Dr. Alix Ingber, associate 
dean of academic affairs and pro- 
fessor of Spanish, describes the 
new skills initiative as being 
"more intentional." While com- 
munication and analytical skills 
have always been important com- 
ponents of a Sweet Briar educa- 
tion, a consistent approach was 

If this were the year 1400, 1 could honestly say that 
we have developed something unique. What we really 
have here is a new version of a Renaissance curricu- 
lum — a curriculum that gives you skills in speaking 
and writing to carry out into public life; that is 
adaptable to your personal life. . . 

-Karl Tamburr 

Sweet Briar College Alumwe Magazine ■ Winter 1999 

But ot" all the curricular tran- 
sitions occurring this year, the 
least visible change may be the 
most intriguing. The old "pink 
sheet" tucked away inside every 
student's file has been trans- 
formed. Instead of focusing on 
individual departments, Sweet 
Briar's distribution requirements 
now consist of nine knowledge 
areas. The traditional, inescapable 
laboratory course in biology, 
chemistry, or physics is gone. In 
its place is a neat block ot type 
that reads: "Understanding the 
world through (a) scientific the- 
ory, and (b) scientific experiment 
and observation." The new word- 
ing reflects the College's depar- 
ture from "cookbook" science to 
an increasingly successful inves- 
tigative approach. The other 
eight knowledge areas follow a 
similar model. 

Margaret Hartman, professor 
of philosophy, explains the shift 
away from department-centered 
requirements saying: "The old 
'Chinese menu' is out. Students 
no longer take a course in the 
English department; they take a 
course in literature. This require- 
ment can be filled in a foreign 
language department, for exam- 
ple, in French or Spanish litera- 
ture, as well as in English. 
Distribution requirements are or- 
ganized around the types of 
knowledge we want students ex- 
posed to during their four years 
here. As a result, students have a 
broader range of choices." 

No matter where you look, 
the faculty has exhaustively reex- 
amined every aspect of a Sweet 
Briar education — revising, inte- 
grating, innovating, and ulti- 
mately arming young women 
with the competencies they need 
to succeed in the decades ahead. 
"If this were the year 1400, 1 
could honestly say that we have 
developed something unique," 
notes Karl Tamburr, professor ot 
English. "What we really have 
here is a new version of a 
Renaissance curriculum — a cur- 
riculum that gives you skills in 
speaking and writing to carry out 

into public life; that is adaptable 
to your personal life; that gives 
you not just the facts, but shows 
you how areas of knowledge are 
interconnected. It is a practical 
education in many ways, but it is 
also idealistic. It is a legacy that 
requires you to question your 
purpose every now and then to 
make sure vour approach is still 

These pages cannot possibly 
cover all of the exciting changes 
and opportunities rising out ot 
the General Education Program. 
An outstanding example drawn 
from one department has an 
equivalent in another, making it 
difficult to decide who and what 
to feature. It is a delightful 
predicament that supports 
President Muhlenfeld's descrip- 
tion of Sweet Briar as "a dynamic 
center for learning that continues 
to change in order to remain rel- 

mic programs. This is the most 
immediate application. Self- 
assessment essays are useful in 
dozens of other ways. 

Melissa Henning, senior and 
student government president, 
has no difficulty grasping the 
benefit of writing self-assessment 
essays. She has had to compose 
several comparable pieces over 
the course of her Sweet Briar ca- 
reer, most recently as part of her 
application for a summer fellow- 
ship at the Family Research 
Council in Washington, D.C. 

According to Melissa, appli- 
cations for fellowships, intern- 
ships, study abroad, and graduate 
school programs all require per- 
sonal essays. The same applica- 
tions also call for 
recommendations. "Having a 
self-assessment essay in place 
means vou don't have to begin 


In the swirl of college life, it is 
easy — sometimes necessary — to 
focus exclusively on the tasks at 
hand. Papers, exams, presenta- 
tions, labs, meetings, lectures, and 
special events leave little time to 
reflect on accomplishments or to 
contemplate long-term goals. 
This is why Sweet Briar's new 
General Education Program in- 
cludes a self-assessment compo- 
nent for students. It's not just a 
good idea to think about your 
personal development; it's re- 

During Orientation, freshmen 
write the first of three essays out- 
lining their interests, proficien- 
cies, and educational objectives. 
Thev write a similar essay in the 
middle of their sophomore year 
as part of selecting their majors. 
A third and final essay asks se- 
niors to evaluate their Sweet 
Briar experience in light of their 
postgraduate goals. These confi- 
dential, ungraded essays help stu- 
dents and their advisors devise 
meaningful, individualized acade-

from scratch when applying to 
these competitive programs. 
Even more important, it gives 
vour professors a broader sense of 
your interests and goals. They 
can use that information to write 
stronger letters of recommenda- 

Valdrie Walker, the College's 
vibrant new dean of co-curricular 
life, is well aware of the needs of 
students like Melissa Henning. 
Her vision takes the self- 
assessment concept a step further. 
She wants to create a co-curricu- 
lar "portfolio" that complements 
each student's academic tran- 
script and essays. Though 

Melissa will graduate before 
Dean Walker's idea is imple- 
mented, she agrees with the value 
ot such an effort. 

"Portfolios will help students 
be even more deliberate about 
what they are getting out of their 
educations," says Melissa. "As it 
develops over four years, a port- 
folio might consist of your on- 
eampus work experience and 
volunteer activities. Your resume 
could be added along with letters 
from internship supervisors or 
visiting professors. Things like 
research or writing samples 
should be included. Instead of 
scrambling to assemble these 
items at the last minute, you'll be 
building them as you go along. 
You'll leave Sweet Briar with a 
tangible product you can take 
away with you. You'll not only 
leave with a degree, but a portfo- 
lio of achievements." 

While Melissa Henning out- 
i lines the benefits of taking self- 
assessment a step further, Kathy 
Pegues, Alumnae Association 
president, discusses the value of 
taking it a step back. As 
Association president, Kathy had 
access to Sweet Briar's general 
education proposal. She decided 
to use the self-assessment portion 
of the program in her eighth- 
grade class. 

"My students were at a cross- 
roads, graduating from middle 
school," explains Kathy. "I de- 
cided it was the perfect time for a 
self-assessment essay and as- 
signed it as their final exam. 
Well, they were so excited; they 
wanted their essays returned! I'm 
slowly honoring their request, 
writing notes on each and mail- 
ing them back. Most of the es- 
says displayed the most 
wonderful writing I've seen, well 
organized and very thoughtful. 
So, it looks like I was able to give 
them the first hint of something 
Sweet Briar taught me. That is, 
education is not something that 
is done to you. It is something 
you actively participate in to dis- 
cover your own ability."

Don't be fooled by titles like 
The Making of a Musical, Must 
See TV? or Alien Worlds. The 16 
first-year seminars offered this 
fall were created to function as 
boot camps for the mind, intro- 
ducing first-year students to the 
rigors of the new General 
Education Program. 

First-year seminars focus on 
the skills and intellectual prac- 
tices promoted at Sweet Briar, 
leaving the faculty free to select 
themes and develop content that 
does not apply toward the com- 
pletion of a major. Unlike 
introductory-level courses, these 

seminars do not have to cover a 
prescribed range of material. 
Professors can concentrate on 
their students' speaking, writing, 
or quantitative skills — all cen- 
tered around an engaging 
topic.Though seminars share a 
common liberal arts perspective, 
no two are alike. 

Jeff Key, professor of govern- 
ment, returning from several 
months in Bangladesh, uses his 
research to inform the Global 
Problems and Politics seminar. 
"The area I study, South Asia, is 
a troubled part of the world," 
Key explains. "Students in a safe 
and secure context like Sweet 
Briar don't have to worry about 
ethnic strife sweeping across the 
country', displacing them, and up- 

rooting their lives. But they may 
someday play a role in solving 
problems like this. I teach ex- 
pecting that the next Madeleine 
Albright is sitting among my stu- 

As one part of a larger assign- 
ment, Professor Key's students 
engage in formal briefings. 
Students are required to master 
information and then package it 
in concise, useful ways. "They 
have to present information as 
though they were reporting to 
high-level officials on a fact-find- 
ing mission. Decision makers 
don't have the time or the pa- 
tience for long papers or theoreti- 
cal issues. They want to know 
everything you know and they 
want it fast." 

| Students are learning to 
f compare and critique 
s media. They are making 
* decisions about quality, 
depth, and authenticity 
from an informed back- 
ground, just because 
something is on the web 
does not mean it is a 
sound, scholarly source. 

— Angelo Metzidakis 

While Professor Key's stu- 
dents are being grilled at the 
podium, students in 
Contemporary Environmental 
Issues are out in the woods 
searching for "meaningful natural 
objects." It sounds rather idyllic, 
until Sang Hwang, assistant pro- 
fessor and director of environ- 
mental studies, puts the 
assignment in context: "Before 
students can begin deconstruct- 
ing articles on environmental is- 
sues, they have to extract each 
author's underlying philosophy. 
Journalists, politicians, activists, 
and corporations use the environ- 
ment as a metaphor to express 
their values in very subtle ways. 
So, as a preliminary exercise, I 
have students select a natural ob-

ject — a pine cone, a leaf, or a 
weed — and use it as a metaphor 
to express their personal values." 

Deconstructing Professor 
Hwang's seminar, it is clear that 
he is using Sweet Briar's pic- 
turesque 3,300 acres as a 
metaphor to express a liberal arts 
agenda. And many other first- 
year seminar instructors are using 
similarly subde tactics. 

Among the educational re- 
sources used in Paris through the 
Ages are travel guides, a TV 
movie, and several web sites. But, 
as students soon discover, these 
materials are used strategically to 
provide contrast. Angelo 
Metzidakis, professor of French, 
also has his students reading 
journalistic texts, memoirs, di- 
aries, and essays from various pe- 
riods. "In the process of working 
on their assignments, students 
are learning to compare and cri- 
tique media. They are making 
decisions about quality, depth, 
and authenticity from an in- 
formed background. Just because 
something is on the web does not 
mean it is a sound, scholarly 

Perhaps the toughest decision 
by any group of students oc- 
curred in Today's Ethical 
Challenges. Unsure of exacdy 
what final requirements to set for 
the seminar, Margaret Hartman, 
professor of philosophy, allowed 
her students to participate in the 
process. "My seminar attracted 
12 students who were strong in 
both the sciences and the hu- 
manities. I did not give them a 
complete syllabus at the start be- 
cause I wanted to get a better 
sense of their backgrounds and 
capabilities. Well, they all agreed 
that the end-point would be a 
10-page research paper and an 
oral presentation in which each 
student defends her thesis." 

Professor Hartman is not 
alone in the type of feedback she 
is receiving from students. 
According to Professor Key, first- 
year seminars "are supposed to be 
about setting a base of expecta- 
tions in knowledge and skills. 

However, I think we may also be 
setting a base of engagement. 
Many of my students are in class 
early talking about the issues 
we're covering in class. They're 
taking ownership of their educa- 
tion. That's a great way to begin 
your four years at Sweet Briar." 

Minor Has 
Major Impact 

They found it! 

Last summer, a group of stu- 
dents from Sweet Briar and other 
colleges uncovered Booker T 
Washington's birthplace during 
an archaeological dig in Franklin 
County, Virginia. 

Working under the direction 
of Dr. Amber Moncure, visiting 
assistant professor of anthropol- 
ogy and Sweet Briar Class of 
1991, students are conducting an 
archaeological assessment of the 
Booker T Washington National 

"The National Park Service 
had approached me the previous 
fall about their need for the as- 
sessment," explains Professor 
Moncure. "After only several days 
of digging in 1958, a cabin was 
excavated and reconstructed on 
the site. That was the extent of 
the archaeological research. No 
one knew for certain if it was 
Washington's birthplace, but it 
served as a model." 

Based on historical docu- 
ments and oral tradition, 
Professor Moncure had good rea- 
sons for searching elsewhere on 
the site. Though the most likely 
location of Washington's birth- 
place had been bulldozed during 
the construction of park facilities, 
the team took up the challenge. 
Students covered the suspected 
area with 18-by-18 inch holes 
every 25 feet. 

Recounting the event, 
Professor Moncure remains 
humble. "We got lucky," she 
claims. "One of those little holes 
came down on dark soil mixed 
with clay. We opened up a bigger 
set and — voila! — there was the 
cabin. It was a log cabin and,

The one link between all archaeological studies — 
American, Classical, South American — is the shovel. 
You have to get your hands dirty to understand the 
process and make sense of it. We are always seeking 
opportunities to give students the basic experience 
they need to pursue their own research and interests.

based on the artifacts inside, it 
clearly belonged to slaves. The 
12-foot square sits where oral 
history indicated Booker T. 
Washington was born in 1856." 

The students were enrolled in 
Sweet Briars new Field School 
In Historical Archaeology, a 
summer program offering practi- 
cal fieldwork opportunities. 
Currendy, students conduct digs 
both on the Sweet Briar campus 
and at the Booker T. Washington 
National Monument. During the 
academic year, Sweet Briar ar- 
chaeology minors participate in 
similar activities. 

"The one link between all ar- 
chaeological studies — American, 
Classical, South American — is 
the shovel," says Professor 
Moncure. "You have to get your 
hands dirtv to understand the 
process and make sense of it. We 
are always seeking opportunities 
to give students the basic experi- 
ence they need to pursue their 
own research and interests." 

Compared with the highly- 
trafficked Booker T Washington 
site, the Sweet Briar campus is 
pristine. This summer, the same 
students put in approximatelv 
350 test holes around Sweet 
Briar House and a nearby slave 
cabin. In the process, they uncov- 
ered two small stone foundations 
that mav be additional slave cab- 
ins. There is also evidence that 
blacksmithing occurred surpris- 
inglv close to the main house. 
But the most potentially exciting 
find was an acre's worth of 
crushed brick scattered across 
what appears to be a work yard 
for laundering, cooking, and 

In addition to providing ar- 
chaeology minors with "hands- 
on" experience, campus 
excavations coincide with 
Professor Moncure s own re- 
search on enslaved African 
Americans. "The history of 
Sweet Briar is a microcosm of 
American history and culture. In 
my research, I'm taking this plan- 
tation with its more than 100 
slaves and 3,000 acres, and pool-

ing the data with other sites. 
Working at Booker T 
Washington, Poplar Forest, 
Monticello, and other places in 
Central Virginia, you begin to 
get a regional picture of Southern 
plantation life." 

Having such remarkable re- 
sources underfoot accelerates 
teaching and learning. "There is a 
material world around us," says 
Professor Moncure. "At Sweet 
Briar you don't have to spend 
hours describing it. You can walk 
out the classroom door and grab 
hold of it." 

Cleaning Up Your 
Image: Physics 
and Computer 
Science at SBC 

As an undergraduate at MIT, 
Scott Hyman, assistant professor 
of physics, worked as a "delivery 
boy," carrying IBM cards around 
from lab to lab. "Today," says 
Professor Hyman, "computers 
have evolved to the point where 
my students can participate di- 
recdy in projects. I've had 

English majors working with 
math and physics majors. All stu- 
dents are invited." 

Posted in the hallway outside 
Professor Hyman's office are pic- 
tures^ — actually high-resolution 
radio maps — of spiral galaxies. 
The pictures are created at Sweet 
Briar using raw data sent via the 
internet from the National Radio 
Astronomy Observatory in New 
Mexico. "What we do," explains 
Professor Hyman, "is take obser- 
vations from an array of 27 dish 
antennas spread across the desert 
and download the information to 
a Unix workstation here. The 
data from each antenna has to be 
crunched and correlated in a cer-

picture." The project, which is 
funded in part by the Jeffress 
Memorial Trust, includes support 
for summer research assistants. 

To help students enhance the 
quality of astronomical images or 
any other type of images used in 
scientific research, Professor 
Hyman is developing a new 
physics/computer science course 
called "Image Processing and 
Pattern Recognition." Last sum- 
mer, Shweta Sharma '01 received 
a separate VFIC Minority 

Summer Research Fellowship to 
work with Professor Hyman on a 
project applying image process- 
ing techniques to handwritten 

"Shweta added 'noise' in the 
form of blurs and speckles to 
handwritten digits. Then, apply- 
ing different automated tech- 
niques, she used a computer to 
improve and classify those im- 
ages. This type of tool can be 
used in radio astronomy to 'clean 
up' images of galaxies. Biologists 
might use the same technology 
to reduce 'noise' in images pro- 
duced with a scanning electron 

According to Professor 
Hyman, human beings take 
image processing for granted. For 
example, we recognize the same 
face with different expressions, 
from different angles, under vari- 
ous lighting conditions. "Show a 
computer two mug shots of the 
same man, one of him scowling 
and the other of him smiling, 
and the computer will not make 
the connection — not unless you 
provide it with very sophisticated 
mathematical algorithms. These 
are the types of challenges we en- 
counter when we try to automate

Professor Hyman's interest in 
image processing dates back to 
his post-doctoral year at the 
National Institutes ot Health. 
There, researchers were working 
on an artificial neural network 
(ANN), a computing device that 
learns through experience. "Based 
on Pavlovian conditioning exper- 
iments with animals, the NIH 
and its contractors were creating 
crude models of the mechanisms 
of learning. My physics back- 
ground, especially 
statistical mechanics, | 
was adaptable to the 
project. There are 
parallels between 

systems of neurons leading to 
high-level cognitive functions 
and systems ot particles leading

Professor Hyman uses com- 
puter technology judiciously 
throughout the curriculum, ex- 
posing his students to a wide va- 
riety of research tools. "We're 
always limited by the tools," he 
says. "Technology is good for 
science because it allows us to 
stay on the job, exploring the 
same questions we were asking 
50 years ago: What makes a nu- 
cleus work? Why are there galax- 
ies? How do storms form?

Experience For 
Rocket Scientists 

Lombardi '01 
entered Sweet 
Briar planning 
to major in 
physics. But 

her summer fellowship at NASA 
has helped to refine her goals. 
"What she is saying now is that 
she's going to be a rocket scion 
ti>t," says Carlos Calle, professor 
of physics. 

In 1998, Professor Calle was 
awarded a NASA faculty fellow- 
ship for a project titled 
"Electrostatic Charge and 
Discharge of Sub-micron Dust 
Particles in the Simulated 
Martian Environment." The re- 
search is critical to keeping 
NASA's equipment in good 
working order on a planet prone 
to global dust storms. 

Anne began assisting 
Professor Calle with preliminary 
research during the spring semes- 
ter of her freshman year. Then, 
during the summer, she contin- 
ued to work for 10 weeks at the 
Kennedy Space Center with 
funding from both the Florida 
Space Grant Commission and 
the Sweet Briar Science 

"My research involves under- 
standing the dry Martian soil, 
particularly its elec- 

trostatic or magnetic properties," 
says Professor Calle. "Anne 
helped me and my collaborators 
at NASA design and set up ex- 
periments from scratch. She par- 
ticipated in our discussions and 
helped to collect data. After 
spending several weeks with us, 
she joined another, adjacent team 
that needed her assistance." 

Anne joined two NASA sci- 
entists who were characterizing a 
type of volcanic ash from Hawaii 
that serves as a simulant or sub- 
stitute for Martian soil. The 
paper she wrote summarizing the 
research was presented before the 
entire division at NASA at the 
end of the summer. "Everybody 
was there," recalls Professor 
Calle. "The project has high visi- 
bility and people were interested 
in the results. Anne's presentation 
provoked an animated discussion, 
but she fielded questions very 

Anne was by far the youngest 
research assistant there. Most of 
the professors conducting experi- 
ments at the Kennedy Space 
Center come from large universi- 
ties where

uates — even freshmen like 
Anne — receive these high-level 

Because Professor Calle is 
limited in the number of students 
he can take to NASA, he is 
preparing to bring portions of his 
research to Sweet Briar. "Some of 
my work requires expensive, large 
equipment," he explains. "Other 
components I can set up here 
with my students. This is what 
I'm planning to do spring semes- 
ter. I'm teaching a research course 
that will expose majors to some 
of the ongoing work I'm doing 
for NASA. It's exciting and chal- 
lenging. These are very delicate 
experiments that require a great 
deal of care and precision. It's 
important experience and, this 
way, four to five students will be 
able to participate and share the 

From Bombers 
to Butterflies: 
Comes to SBC 

Before Sweet Briar professors 
can introduce students to cutting- 
edge research tools, they have to 
learn to use the equipment them- 
selves. This is how Linda Fink, 
associate professor of biology, is 
spending her sabbatical year. She 
is bringing a pair of new, comple- 
mentary technologies to campus: 
global positioning system (GPS) 
devices and geographic informa- 
tion system (GIS) mapping soft- 

GPS is a worldwide network 
or Defense Department satellites 
that can pinpoint the latitude, 
longitude, elevation, speed, and 
direction of missiles, troops, and 
ships. Civilian uses range from 
commercial aviation and public 

safety applications, to recreational 
use by weekend boaters and hik- 
ers. Incorporating the data pro- 
vided by GPS satellites, GIS 
software creates both accurate 
maps and powerful geographical 
databases tor analysis. 
Professional-quality versions of 
both technologies are on the 
verge of widespread use in a vari- 
ety of disciplines including envi- 
ronmental studies, engineering, 
geology, and archaeology. 

At Sweet Briar, GPS/GIS has 
multiple uses both inside and 
outside the classroom. The 
College's riding and outdoor pro- 
grams, the buildings and grounds 
office, and the land-use commit- 
tee will benefit along with stu- 
dents and professors in the 
sciences. "I don't believe in tech- 
nology tor technology's sake," 
savs Professor Fink. "But, in this 
case, the hardware and software 
really does give us the power to 
make better academic and recre- 
ational use of our 3,300 acres. 
Plus, this stuff is 'hot.' Students 

who have experience using these 
technologies will have greater 
employment opportunities." 

In addition to all its other on- 
campus uses, GPS/GIS has a 
valuable application in Professor 
Fink's own research. She and her 
husband, biology professor 
Lincoln Brower, are monitoring 
the annual population and mi- 
gration of monarch butterflies. 
Recently, the two researchers es- 
tablished a Butterfly Research 
Garden on the Sweet Briar cam- 
pus, behind the SBC Train 
Station and Caboose. The X- 
shaped stand of butterfly bush 
[Buddkia davidii) attracts many 
species of butterflies from early 
summer through mid-autumn. 
Butterflv activity is weather de- 
pendent. On warm, clear after- 
noons through mid-September 
the researchers and their students 
can see hundreds of individuals. 

The "X" is oriented to the 
compass (north-south-east-west) 
to allow the study of changes in 
monarchs' flight directions as

they shift from summer breeding 
generations to the fall migratory 
generation. The tall generation of 
monarch butterflies will migrate 
to sites high in the mountains of 
Mexico. Brower, one of the 
world's foremost experts on the 
species, is concerned that defor- 
estation in butterflies' wintering 
sites in Mexico may seriously de- 
plete the population. 

"These butterflies go to very 
tiny areas in the forest where a 
big conservation problem exists," 
says Professor Fink. "Using GPS 
in combination with aerial pho- 
tos, we can train our GIS soft- 
ware to give us a profile of 
conditions at these remote 
Mexican sites. It can help us an- 
swer questions like Is there illegal 
logging going on ? or Are the butter- 
flies moving downhill? It's a per- 
fect example of how these 
technologies are good for much 
more than navigation and map- 
ping. It's also a perfect way for 
students to learn just how power- 
ful these tools can be in the stud- 
ies of field biology and ecology." 

Business with a 
Spanish Accent 

"We're doing everything we 
can to make sure that Sweet 
Briar's new Spanish/business 

major dips down below the 
trees," says Bill Hosteder, associ- 
ate professor of economics and 
director of the management pro- 
gram. "That's why we are actively 
searching for alumnae who have 
business experience related to 
Latin America. It could be in 
human relations, sales and mar- 
keting, accounting, supply, or 
manufacturing — we're not look- 
ing for a specific type of business 
or corporate position — all experi- 
ences and insights are welcome." 

As the former coordinator of 
local industrial development for 
the Arabian Oil Company 
(ARAMCO) in Saudi Arabia, 
Professor Hosteder knows that 
subde variations in a student's 
academic background and work 
experience can make or break a 
hiring decision. "It is one thing 
to get students into the applicant 
pool for consideration. It's an- 
other to get them selected for the 
job. We want our majors to pass 
both tests and, later, move up the 
organizational ladder." 

The new major is the inter- 
disciplinary brainchild of 
Professor Hosteder and Dr. Alix 
Ingber, professor of Spanish and 
associate dean of academic af- 
fairs. The curriculum combines 
courses in Spanish language and 
Hispanic culture with courses in 
accounting, marketing, manage- 

ment, and international business. 
Where appropriate, economics 
courses include material that re- 
lates specifically to the culture 
and business environment of the 
Hispanic world. 

Computer literacy is empha- 
sized throughout the major. 
Students use technology to con- 
duct research, develop graphical 
presentations, submit course- 
work, and correspond with pro- 
fessors. Majors are also 
encouraged to take relevant 
courses in other departments 
such as cultural anthropology, en- 
vironmental ethics, or interna- 
tional politics. 

Explaining where alumnae tit 
into the mix, Dr. Ingber points 
out that "We can always count 
on alumnae to tell us what they 
know about life after Sweet Briar. 
They're willing to give us the in- 
side story, speaking not only as 
professionals, but as former stu- 
dents and as women. We value 
their 'on the ground' perspective, 
especially when it comes to 
working in cultures that are not 
as accepting of women in the 

The required coursework for 
Spanish/business is evenly di- 
vided between Spanish and eco- 
nomics. The major culminates in 
the senior year with two courses: 
Spanish 222 in the fall, and an 

interdisciplinary senior exercise in 
the spring. Last semester, instead 
of focusing on traditional literary 
analysis and research techniques, 
Spanish/business majors in 222 
were developing the marketing 
analysis and research tools neces- 
sary to support their interdiscipli- 
nary projects. 

"The research majors are im- 
mersed in this year will benefit 
all students to follow," explains 
Dr. Ingber. "They are doing re- 
search on the major itself, devis- 
ing a survey that will help them 
in part to package themselves as 
job candidates."

ences, it is no surprise to hear 
that Sweet Briar has an "old

science major until this fall. 

"We've had a mathemaths- 
computer science major in place 
for a number of years," explains 
Professor Chase. "These majors 
have had no difficulty landing 
good jobs with starting salaries 
that continue to shock me! Quite 
a few are in positions now where 
they can assist with internships 
and job opportunities. They're 
very generous about it, e-mailing 
the department to let us know 
that they're ready and willing to 
help. Meantime, we've been 
looking forward to building on 
this success with a new, separate 
computer science major." 

Reaching into his file cabinet, 
Professor Chase pulls out the lat- 
est statistics. "The demand for 
information-technology workers 
is incredible. There are currendy 
345,000 positions unfilled in the 
United States; 25,000 in Virginia 
alone. Still, we did not want to 
respond to either student requests 
or industry needs by offering just 
any computer science major. We 
wanted to ensure that our gradu- 
ates would continue to stand 

In preparation for the new 

Robert Chase 

major, Sweet Briar's department 
of mathematical sciences re- 
designed its entire computer 
science curriculum to emphasize 
"real world" practices. The task 
also involved faculty recruitment 
and retraining. "We now have the 
breadth of courses and the faculty 
expertise to support a pure com- 
puter science major," says Chase. 
"This is what our students 
wanted and the response has 
been overwhelmingly favorable. 

We have more majors now than 
ever before." 

Like all other Sweet Briar 
students, computer science ma- 
jors benefit from small classes, 
access to faculty, independent 
work, and hands-on research. But 
the working relationships these 
majors form with professors mav 
prove to be more critical in the 
short term. After all, who do the 
computer experts call when they 
need help? 

"Yes," Professor Chase happily 
admits, "I've answered more than 
one panic call. But that's standard. 
No matter how well prepared you 
are, first jobs are always a little 
frightening. I've had graduates 
tossed — bang! — into the middle 
of huge corporate networks. I 
think just knowing that thev 
could call made a difference. 
Sometimes you just need some- 
one else to confirm what you 
already know. Then, you're fine."

We're Not "Just LibERAl Arts" Anymore 

By Catherine Lumsden '78 

Sweet Briar College provides a fine liberal 
arts education tor voung women. But are you 
aware of its strong standing in the scientific 
and technical communities? Recent additions 
to the curriculum have made Sweet Briar 
even more appealing to voung women who 
plan a technical career. To better prepare 
graduates for careers within the technical 
arena, the College now offers a computer 
science major. 

Sweet Briar also offers an engineering 
dual-degree program with Columbia 
Universitv or Washington University in St. 
Louis. Under this program, a student com- 
bines three vears of accelerated study at Sweet 
Briar with two vears of study at the cooperat- 
ing institution, earning a bachelor of science 
degree from Sweet Briar and a B.S. degree in 
engineering (mechanical, chemical, civil, elec- 
trical, nuclear and others), health systems, 
computer science, or management science 
from the other school. More and more 
women attending Sweet Briar are opting to 
pursue technical careers. 

Sweet Briar alumnae are found through- 
out the entire spectrum of technological and 
scientific fields. Not only are many of our 
graduates doctors; many are computer spe- 
cialists, including software developers, mili- 
tary officers, engineers, and research 
scientists. The Research Triangle area in 
North Carolina is home to more than 150 
graduates and students. Dr. Margaret Leigh 73 
is professor or pediatrics and chief of the 
Division of Pulmonary Medicine and Allergy 
at the Universitv of North Carolina. 
Dr. Leigh states that Sweet Briar prepared 
her for medical school. "I had a solid founda- 
tion in science through courses in biology, 
chemistry and physics, as well as a broad un- 
derstanding ot the liberal arts. Perhaps Sweet 
Briar's greatest impact on me and my class- 
mates who have pursued a variety of careers is 
the sell-confidence and self-esteem that 
evolved from the small classroom environ- 
ment. I think that we were challenged to 
'speak our minds' more than women in a 
large classroom, university environment 
might be. We certainly had the confidence 

that we could succeed in any area if we 
worked effectively." A number of Dr. Leigh's 
classmates have successful careers in science, 
as well as in business, social work, advertising, 
creative writing and creative arts. 

Katie Clarkson, Class of 1997, is a soft- 
ware engineer in Raleigh. She develops and 
services the communications server software 
for the OS/390 (an operating system for 
mainframe computers). She attributes Sweet 
Briar with providing her with the technical 
knowledge she needs in her daily activities at 
IBM: "Sweet Briar taught me how to learn. 
In this job, you have to be able to think on 
your feet. Things change so quickly that you 
are constandy learning new things. The abil- 
ity to truly think and learn 'on the fly' has 
proven to be equally as beneficial as, if not 
more beneficial than, my technical skills." 

Katie has the highest accolades for Sweet 
Briar. For women pursuing a technical de- 
gree, she lauds not only the College's curricu- 
lum but also the professors. "If there was a 
subject area that I wanted to know more 
about, my professors were always very willing 
to set up an independent study with me in 
that area. Never did I have to worry about 
not gaining knowledge because there was not 
a class offered on a particular subject. I 
quickly tound that the only limits on my 
learning were the ones that I created. There 
was nothing that I couldn't do if I really 
wanted to do it. My professors were always 
available tor questions and encouraged me to 
'think outside of the box.' They got just as 
excited as I did when I succeeded. If I could 
give one piece of advice to prospective stu- 
dents interested in computer science at Sweet 

Perhaps Sweet Briars greatest im- 
pact on me. . . is the self-confidence 
and self-esteem that evolved from 
the small classroom environment. I 
think that we were challenged to 
'speak our minds' more than 
women in a. . . university environ- 
ment might be. We certainly had 
the confidence that we could suc-

Briar, it would be GO FOR IT! It truly is 
what you make of it — the sky is your limit." 

This flexibility in designing a program to 
fit the student's needs is a major focus at the 
College and one that is not present at large 
universities. At Sweet Briar, young women, 
with the help of independent studies, are able 
to customize a major, structuring a technical 
degree that best suits their needs. 

Another recent graduate, Kindle Samuel '98, 
is completing her master of accounting 
degree at the University of North Carolina's 
School of Business. She shares Katie's enthu- 
siasm for the foundation Sweet Briar 
provided for a technical career. The world of 
public accounting is very dynamic and the 
traditional ideas that many people have about 
accounting no longer hold true. Kindle cred- 
its her liberal arts background as providing

her with a more essential set of skills, specifi- 
cally, high analytic skills. "I am able to exam- 
ine information and articulate on a 
conceptual and detailed level what is going 
on; this I learned at Sweet Briar. Although 
the type of information that I am analyzing is 
new to me, knowing 'how to' allows me to 
make the transition." 

Sweet Briar gave Kindle a unique oppor- 
tunity to get involved in just about every- 
thing. In job interviews, she speaks freely of 
her leadership experiences, teamwork, com- 
munity service, working outside of her "com- 
fort zone," as well as her ability to set and 
achieve goals. "This is what employers want 
to hear and talk about. Sweet Briar is defi- 
nitely the place where you can get super ex- 
posure and have unbelievable opportunity 
and support, not only to become involved in 
something, but to stick with it and help it 
grow and become better." 

Many of Kindles business school class- 
mates went to large, big-name schools, were 
undergraduate business majors, and had more 
exposure to the subject matter. But Kindle 
has learned that what matters to employers is 
that prospective employees are intelligent and 
can learn. When she and her classmates were 
preparing for employment interviews, many 
classmates struggled to come up with perti- 
nent leadership and teamwork experiences. 
Kindles struggle was to figure out how she 
would be able to fit into a one-hour interview 
all of her experiences at Sweet Briar. Her 
Sweet Briar education has given Kindle an 
advantage over her classmates by providing 
her with very marketable assets. 

The world is changing; so is the job mar- 
ket. Careers in technology are some of the 
most promising for the new graduate. A lib- 
eral arts education still provides an excellent 
foundation, but supplemented with a techni- 
cal background it becomes even more mar- 
ketable. Today's job market demands that 
college graduates be fluent in the use of the 
computer and conversant with basic software 
packages. With more and more companies 
relying on web sites to communicate their 
message, webmasters are an integral asset of a 
company's communication channel. But these 
webmasters must also know how to write, 

which is why the liberal arts education is so 
valuable. Presentation and writing skills are 
imperative to be successful. You must be able 
to communicate your message. The College's 
excellent English program coupled with tech- 
nical courses provides the foundation for a 
graduate to be competitive in today's work- 

To enhance the competitiveness of Sweet 
Briar graduates, many alumnae work closely 
with the College to coordinate internships, 
which offer the opportunity to gain valuable 
work experience and develop helpful contacts, 
during the academic year or in the summer. 
In the past, students have interned at large 
technology companies, including IBM, and 
SAS Institute, Inc. The College's Career 
Services Office puts students in touch with 
alumnae working within such companies who 
have agreed to serve as mentors and are 
happy to assist with internships. 

If you know a young woman who plans to 
pursue a technical major, encourage her to 
take a close look at Sweet Briar. I think that 
she will be pleased with what the College has 
to offer.

Orientation 1998 

By Katie Wright '00 

Student Intern, Sweet Briar Alumnae Magazine 

In 1906, Orientation consisted of an infor- 
mal meeting, a reception, an afternoon pic- 
nic, and a special evening exercise. A 
debate over school colors and election of the 
first student government officers took place. 
That first Orientation effort is not to be un- 
derestimated: all of the students were new — no 
upperclasswomen to serve as guides. The Class 
of 1910 had to orient itself! Ninety-two years 
later, Orientation for the Class of 2002 was 
very different. 

Planning an Orientation program begins in 
the fall of the year before a new class enters, 
with the election of an Orientation 
Chairwoman. Meg Pollard '99 chaired 1998's 
Planning Committee, which included Dean of 
Co-Curricular Life Valdrie Walker; Assistant 
Dean of Co-Curricular Life Susan Iverson; 
Coordinator of Co-Curricular Programs 
Martha Woodroof; Associate Dean of 
Academic Affairs Alix Ingber; Director of 
SWEBOP (Sweet Briar College Outdoor 
Program) Laura Staman; Dean of the College 
George Lenz; and 23 student representatives 
who served as Orientation Group Leaders. 
During the weeklong Orientation program in 
August, faculty, staff, upperclasswomen and 
new students participated enthusiastically — a 
college-wide effort immersing all in an atmos- 
phere of learning and fun. The theme was 
"This is the Place," chosen to help newcomers 
get acquainted with the College and the area. 

The week concentrated on learning ins and 
outs of campus life: using the computer net- 
work and electronic mail, conducting research 
in the library, meeting with academic advisors, 
time/stress management, the Honor Code, 
placement and handbook tests, honors work 
orientation, sessions for students seeking cam- 
pus jobs or loans, nautilus training — and mem- 
orizing the campus map! "Orientation is a 
good idea because it helps students get com- 
fortable with the school," Katie Gjeldum 
(Wheaton, IL) said. First- Year Seminars, new 
this year, began Friday of Orientation week. 
Meant to introduce students to liberal arts ed- 
ucation, these focus on analytical and creative 
abilities, and encourage inclusion and pursuit 
of different interests. 

As part of Orientation's "This is the Place" 
theme, students took part in a new program 

called "Learning on the Land," a variety of ex- 
ploratory sessions/group problem-solving ac- 
tivities which viewed the Sweet Briar 
environment from the perspective of different 
academic disciplines. Students chose from 19 
topics. Coordinator Laura Staman set two 
goals for the exercise: "First, we wanted the 
students to connect with their classmates; sec- 
ond we wanted them to connect with the land. 
Sweet Briar's campus is an outstanding setting 
for an active lifestyle; an outdoor enthusiast has 
everything she wants right in her own back- 

Faculty and staff led adventures around 
campus — excursions by foot, bike or horseback. 
Director of Riding Paul Cronin's group ("View 
From A Horse") observed environmental and 
historical issues on Sweet Briar land — the wa- 
tershed, forests, streams, farmland, trails, and 
erosion controls. Associate Professor of 
Physical Education Bonnie Kestner led 
"Exploring The Many Facets of Water," hiking 
to explore the different ways in which water af- 
fects our lives, finding different campus water 
sources, experiencing water as both a cleansing 
and destructive agent, and enjoying recreational 
water activities — tubing on the lake and creat- 
ing a water slide in a dell. Students with Lee 
Piepho ("Pastoral Sweet Briar"), Sara 
Shallenberger Brown Professor of English, dis- 
covered that the College and Sweet Briar 
House embody cultural ideals that stretch back 
to the Italian Renaissance. They looked at texts 
and pictures showing these origins, then 
walked through Sweet Briar House and 
grounds to see how they were adapted. 
Associate Professor of Studio Art Laura Pharis 
and Honors Fellow Greta Niu's group 
("Inspired By Nature") gathered materials with 
which to draw, paint, and sculpt, using black 
walnut for charcoal, red Virginia clay for paint, 
and bird feather quills for drawing tools. And 
"The Sounds Of Flutes" group, led by 
Associate Professor of Dance Mark Magruder, 
journeyed to the campus' bamboo forest, an in- 
spiring place of quiet beauty; everyone learned 
how to make and decorate a bamboo flute and 
received instructions on basics of flute playing. 
It's no surprise that Learning on the Land 
drew a positive response from the Class of 
2002. Kristi Rose (Hamilton, VA), in Bonnie 
Kestner's group, noted: "No other way would I 
have gotten to explore the campus. I didn't 
even know those trails were there!" Stephanie 

Roche (Lovettsville, VA) also enjoyed herself: 
"Learning on the Land was a great experience, 
an opportunity to explore the campus when I 
probably wouldn't have otherwise." 

Each new student received a copy of The 
Story of Sweet Briar College by Martha Lou 
Lemmon Stohlman '34, and Tradition and 
Change, a four-part anthology of writings by 
members of the Sweet Briar community, past 
and present, about life at the College from its 
founding until now. Section one, 
"Remembering the Past," is composed of 
alumnae recollections, by decade, from 1906- 
1956, most of them excerpts from a special 
1976 edition of the Alumnae Magazine, cele- 
brating SBC's 75 th anniversary. Section two, 
"Clippings: Primary Sources," features clips 
from the Sweet Briar News, from its first issue 
in 1927 to the present. Section three, "Doing 
Sweet Briar History: Analysis and Synthesis," 
tells of the effects of World War II on Sweet 
Briar, the integration of the College, the devel- 
opment of athletics, and changing admission 
standards from 1906 to 1934. Section four, a 
one-pager, includes "The Quiz" (questions to 
test what readers learned ) and "The 
Challenge," urging: "Do your own Sweet Briar 
History: research a topic of interest and submit 
a paper for inclusion in 1999's anthology." 

"Ice-breaker" and "Get-to-know-each- 
other" games, evening entertainments, free 
time for shopping trips (room decoration!), 
picnics, and Boat House parties filled out the 
week. "It was long and crazy but I met a lot of 
people I wouldn't have met otherwise!" said 
Cheyenne Sylvester (Olympia, WA). 

I believe that Sweet Briar's founders would 
be pleased with Orientation 1998. And like the 
Class of 1910, the Class of 2002 is enthusiastic 
and ready to savor "this place."

Telcome to this festive 
occasion, this day on 
which we celebrate 
the founders of Sweet Briar 
College and the start of a new 
academic year. This calling to- 
gether unites those people who 
have gained some sort of connec- 
tion to Sweet Briar, be it in the 
past or present. I welcome all of 
you, as you have chosen to take 
part in this meaningful, memo- 
rable ceremony that honors the 
dream of one woman, Indiana 
Fletcher WLLLiams, a dream in 

which an academic institution 
would be built to educate young 

Sweet Briar is unique in many 
ways, but the two most distinct 
assets I have found here are the 
College's physical setting, or its 
place, and its honor system. 
Sweet Briar's lush forests, rolling 
hills, whispering winds, and pic- 
turesque sunsets have captivated 
those of us who have spent ex- 
tended periods of time here. 
Those of us who have studied 
here have been impressed by the 

Sweet Briar College Alumnae Magazine ■ Winter 1999

sense of honor we gain just by 
coming here, attending classes 
and living here — and the in- 
tegrity, trust, and respect we de- 
velop for and from our 
professors, administrators, and 
staff. Honor, once learned at 
Sweet Briar, becomes honor for 
life, a part of every woman's 
character. It permeates our 
thinking, defines our actions, and 
shapes our opinions. 

On this day I am further re- 
minded of the lyrics of the Sweet 
Briar song: 

Sweet Briar, Sweet Briar, thy 
columns white 

Shine on thy rose a beacon 

Of truth to bear, and radiance 

Thy beauty, Sweet Briar 

The song captures the essence 
of our foundation: the stateliness 
and goodness found in a solid, 
well-rounded education; the 
truth we inherit when we carry 
on in tradition and thanksgiving; 
a light into our futures as we set 
off into the world and promote 
change; and radiance, joy for our 

blessings of knowledge and hope. 
Sweet Briar's place offers bound- 
less space for inspiration. One 
can go anywhere on our 3,300 
acres to think or exercise, play or 
relax. It is a refuge in a fast- 
paced world. In many lives, it al- 
lows freedom to develop 
intellectually, socially, and spiri- 
tually, while challenging one aca- 
demically, all at once. The life 
balance that may be gained from 
a Sweet Briar education is some- 
thing of true essence. 

Each of us here today has 
been granted the opportunity to 
bear a rose in Daisy Williams' 
name. Each of us has the ability 
to allow that rose to grow, 
bloom, open up, and then let the 
petals fall on fertile soil. If we 
welcome that opportunity, seize 
its potential, believe in ourselves, 
and apply it to our lives, we will 
succeed the way Indiana Fletcher 
Williams would have wanted us 
to. And most of all, if we inte- 
grate the Sweet Briar definition 
of honor into our lives forever, 
we will surely learn to embrace 
the world in a different way. 

Sweet Briar College has cer- 
tainly progressed since it first 
opened in 1906. It is still today, 
in the words of the first Board of 
Directors of the College, "a lib- 
eral arts college of the first rank." 
It is blessed with place, spirit, 
and honor. I hope you will join 
me in a continuing sense of awe, 
respect, and thanksgiving for our 
founders — for without them, we 
would not be here today.

Introduction of Katharine Milton 
at Founders' Day/Opening 
Convocation, September 25, 1998, 
by Kathy Garcia Pegues, president 
of the Alumnae Association 

As the new president of 
the Sweet Briar Alumnae 
Association, it is a great 
privilege to be the one to present 
the 1998 Distinguished Alumna 
Award, one of the College's 
highest honors. The award is 
being presented tor the first time 
to an alumna in the field of an- 
thropology. The winner, Dr. 
Katharine Crommelin Milton of 
Sweet Briar's Class of 1962, is 
professor of anthropology at the 
University of California at 
Berkelev. Katharine has an excel- 
lent record as both a teacher and 
a researcher, and I am very proud 
to welcome her back to Sweet 
Briar to receive her award. 

It is a long way-and a far cry- 
from the leafy dells of Sweet 
Briar to the remote jungles of 
Brazil. Katherine took that route, 
though, with some diversions, 
and spends a great deal of her 
time doing research in the 
Amazonian rain forest as well as 
Panama and Papua New Guinea. 
She has endured primitive living 
conditions, infestation by para- 
sites, and a bad bout of malaria, 
yet has pressed on to continue 
her research, making important 
contributions to the field of an- 
thropology. She is an expert in 
primatology, and specializes in 
diet and nutrition, studying the 
diets of non-human primates and 
of remote, forest-dwelling hu- 
mans, and her work provides in- 
sight into what may be the best 

diet for modern humans. 

Much of Katharine's research 
is funded by the most prestigious 
organizations in the scientific 
world, such as the National 
Science Foundation, the National 
Geographic Society, the John 
Simon Guggenheim Memorial 
Foundation, and the University 
of California at Berkeley itself, 
and its Center for Latin- 
American Studies. To mention 
just one of her numerous accom- 
plishments: her 1980 book, The 
Foraging Strategy of Howler 
Monkeys: A Study in Primate 
Economics, was highly innovative 
and influential, essentially show- 
ing aspiring primatologists how 
to conduct a field study; and in 
1988, she and a colleague pub- 
lished in the Journal of 'Nutrition 
the first-ever study of the diges- 
tive physiology of chimpanzees. 
They pointed out that the 
human digestive system is identi- 
cal in most respects to that of 
chimps. Katharine is currendy 
writing an article for the same 
journal comparing the diets of 
modern humans and the pri- 
mates; in it she suggests that hu- 
mans take a careful look at what 
monkeys and apes and chimps 
are eating! 

Katharine has a very broad 
academic background, as one 
would expect from an evolution- 
ary biologist, a dietary ecologist, 
and an anthropologist. She cred- 
its her experience at Sweet Briar 
with helping her to synthesize 
research from several different 
perspectives. Majoring in 
English, she spent her junior year 
in Spain and was active in many 
campus clubs and programs. She 

earned a master's degree in 20th 
century English from the 
University of Iowa, then a second 
master's degree and the Ph.D., 
both in anthropology, New York 
University. She started teaching 
at Berkeley, which is still her aca- 
demic "home," and has won an 
Excellence in Teaching Award 
from Phi Beta Kappa of 
Northern California. In 1995 she 
was named a Fellow of the 
American Academy of Arts and 

The scholarly journals in 
which Katharine's work appears 
are far too numerous for me to 
list, but I'll name a few: The 
American Journal of Physical 
Anthropology; the American 
Anthropologist; the International 
Journal of Primatology; the 
American Journal of Primatology; 
the Journal of Mammalogy; the 
American Naturalist; Ecology; 
Current Anthropology; and 
Scientific American. Katharine has 
been an invited speaker for many 
distinguished gatherings, includ- 
ing international symposia in 
Paris and meetings of London's 
Royal Society. And now, despite 
her crammed schedule, she is 
here with us! 

Katharine's work advances the 
frontiers of knowledge, as she 
goes off alone into the uncharted 
jungle, returns home to make 
sense of what she has found, then 
shares it with all of the world. 
This takes a tremendous amount 
of dedication, stamina, generos- 
ity, and also real physical courage. 
Sweet Briar College is proud to 
salute Katharine's achievements 
and to claim her as one of our

Acceptance of AwarcI 

By Dr. Katharine Crommelin Milton 

Thank you for nominating 
me for the 1998 Sweet 
Briar Distinguished 
Alumna Award. When I look at 
the quality of the women who 
have received this award in the 
past, I feel honored. It is wonder- 
ful to be back at Sweet Briar and 
to be able to speak briefly today 
to you — faculty, students, staff, 
parents and friends. 

. . . my education at 

Sweet Briar 

College... set me 

free to follow 

wherever my mind 

and interests would 

take me — trained 

as a young woman 

at a women s college 

to be fully confident 

in my abilities. 

I came to Sweet Briar after 
graduating from a public high 
school in Montgomery, Alabama. 
This high school was named 
Sydney Lanier, which you have 
to admit is a rather unusual name 
for a high school. Our poor foot- 
ball team, the Poets, had to plav 
under the slogan, "The pen is 
mightier than the sword," but 
perhaps it was this rather quirky 
ambience that first made me 
aware of the power of the written 
word and the excitement that 

might come from using one's 

However, when I came to 
Sweet Briar, even though Sydney 
Lanier was an excellent school, I 
have to confess that I was still a 
bit of a sleepwalker. It was one of 
the famous Ramage sisters, 
Professor Sarah Ramage, whom I 
credit with what might be 
termed mv moment of intellec- 
tual awakening. This moment 
came in her Chaucer class, which 

mistake. So I went to her with 
my exam and asked her about it. 
She gently pointed out that I had 
managed to regurgitate many 
Chaucerian facts onto each page 
but that I had failed to take these 
facts and use them in some con- 
structive and original manner to 
address and answer her questions. 
Eureka — that was it, something 
clicked and my mind took off. 

I vividly remember all of my 
professors at Sweet Briar, for ex- 
ample, the wonderful 
Shakespearian scholar Professor 
Lawrence Nelson, who taught us 
English literature but also took 

Katharine Milton, Acceptance Speech 

to this day remains the best class 
I have ever taken. The semester 
started and I dutifully read the 
material and attended my classes, 
confident that I was doing a 
good job. However, then came 
the first exam and when mv 
paper was returned, I'd made a 
D. A D — how could I have got- 
ten a D! English literature was 
my best subject and I loved the 

Well, I thought, Professor 
Ramage has somehow made a 

the time to interact informally 
with his students in ways I leel 
were critical in developing not 
only our minds but also our char- 
acter. Litde comments that we 
hear when we are young, if they 
are positive or even hopeful, can 
often have a lasting impact. 
Professor Nelson occasionally 
went with us as we tubed the 
Goshen River — one of my fa- 
vorite activities. 

One day as Professor Nelson 
was standing on the shore of the 

Goshen with a group of students, 
he saw me come bouncing down 
the river in my inner tube, 
smashing into rocks, totally 
soaked and obviously out of mv 
mind with joy, and he remarked 
in his dry way to the students: 
"That girl has naturally high 
spirits!" This comment was re- 
peated to me bv a friend and I 
tucked it away but I never forgot 
it. In my later anthropological 
work in Brazil, as I came bounc- 
ing down rapid-filled rivers full 
of piranas, sharp rocks, and fatal 
whirlpools in tiny dugout canoes 
steered bv Indians, I would re- 
peat to myself like a mantra, 
"Remember, Katie, you have nat- 
urally high spirits." And this 
mantra seems to have worked so 

Sweet Briar College gave me 
the tools I needed to go out and 
forge a useful and productive life. 
Many different life stages are 
spoken of by experts as forma- 
tive, but what could be more for- 
mative than one's four years of 
college, particularly if you are for- 
tunate enough to be attending a 
wonderful women's college? For 
the first time you are out of your 
family environment on your own 
and generally can pursue just 
about whatever interests you 
without the later distraction of a 
9-to-5 job and demands of a 
family. There simply is no other 
period in our lives that offers this 
freedom and, of course, it is not 
bv chance that it comes at the 
age when the human mind has 
become sufficiently developed to 
make good use of this intellectual 

A college education tradition- 
ally was undertaken as a type of 
personal mental odyssey. No 
pragmatic or monetary' return 
was expected from it — rather, 
this experience was viewed as a 
means of delving into the rich- 
ness of human thought and his- 
tory. But while doing this, a good 
liberal arts education also serves 
as a link which connects us to all 
other generations — past, present, 
and future — and instills in us the

desire to try to contribute in a 
constructive way to this panhu- 
man experience. 

My later training in anthro- 
pology I view as a logical out- 
come of this early training at 
Sweet Briar. My particular field 
is biological anthropology, which 
is the study of human behavior 
and morphology from an evolu- 
tionary perspective. 

Initially I studied the dietary 
behavior of wild primates — pri- 
mates of interest to anthropolo- 
gists because monkeys and apes 
are our closest living relatives. In 
my work with howler monkeys 
and spider monkeys in Panama, 
for example, I was able to docu- 
ment many differences in their 
feeding behavior. Howler mon- 
keys eat diets very high in young 
leaves, which tend to be fairly 
abundant in tropical forests. For 
this reason, howler monkey 
troops have small supplying areas 
and do not have to travel a long 
distance each day to find their 
foods. In contrast, spider mon- 
keys eat diets composed almost 
exclusively of ripe fruits. But 
since ripe fruits are far less abun- 
dant in tropical forests than 
leaves, spider monkeys must 
travel long distances each day to 
find their foods. As a result they 
have huge supplying areas, 10 to 
20 times the size of those of 
howler monkeys. Though howler 
monkeys and spider monkeys 
have the same body size, spider 
monkeys have a brain size double 
the brain size of howler monkeys. 
I have hypothesized that this 
striking brain size difference re- 
lates to the unusual challenges 
faced by spider monkeys in locat- 
ing sufficient wild fruits each day. 
Such a diet appears to call for 
unusual development of learning 
abilities, memory and naviga- 
tional skills to locate these foods 
efficiendy — this reflected in the 
large brain size of spider mon- 

Human evolution likewise is 
characterized by a considerable 
increase in brain size — for exam- 
ple, humans and adult chim- 

panzees are not very different in 
body size but the human brain is 
three times the size of the 
chimp's. I view initial stimulus 
for enhanced brain size in the 
human lineage as likewise stimu- 
lated by foraging challenges — 
probably a climatic change and 
strong decrease in plant food 
availability that in essence forced 
our ancestors to either sharpen 
their wits to meet this challenge 
or go extinct. 

The human dietary niche is 
unique. Humans are cultural om- 
nivores — that is, they use learned 
information and learned behav- 
iors (cultural traditions, and tech- 
nologies) to create viable diets 
and take care of other essential 
requirements no matter where 
they live, this extraordinary 
learning ability based on their ex- 
tensive mental development and 
very large brains. Thus I've found 
that my studies of wild primates 
have helped me to better visual- 
ize factors that may have been 
important in the evolution of my 
own species. 

My growing interest in 
human behavior led me in 1981 
to begin to examine features of 
the dietary ecology of indigenous 
peoples living in tropical forests 
of Brazil. In this research, I've 
now had the privilege of living 
with seven of the least-contacted 
indigenous groups in the 
Brazilian Amazon. I am particu- 
larly interested in the different 
uses each society makes of forest 
products, both plants and ani- 
mals, as foods and also for other 
purposes such as medicine. 
Though forest peoples are often 
regarded as ecologically quite 
similar, my research helps to 
demonstrate the rich variety of 
different ecological traditions 
forest-based peoples possess and 
thus emphasizes the loss to all of 
us in terms of unique human 
knowledge when even one of 
these groups suffers cultural ex- 
tinction, as has been happening 
at an accelerated rate. 

One of my more interesting 
discoveries concerns the use of a 

secretion from an Amazonian 
forest tree frog, Phylomedusa bi- 
color. This frog is captured by 
Panoan-speakers such as the 
Mayoruna or Matis and the se- 
cretion is scraped from the skin 
of the frog and dried. Later it is 
placed in fresh burns of men who 
plan a big hunting expedition the 
next day; it enters their blood 
stream and produces a dramatic 
physiological effect. The Indians 
claim that the secretion sharpens 
their senses when hunting as well 
as bringing them good luck. 

I was able to bring a sample 
of the frog secretion out of the 
jungle with me and sent it to Dr. 
John Daly at the National 
Institutes of Health. His labora- 
tory was ultimately able to iden- 
tify a new peptide from this 
secretion, adenoregulin, that has 
promise in the treatment of some 
human diseases. Of note too is 
the fact that though this frog 
species is found over a huge area 
of Amazonia, generally only 
Panoan-speaking groups use it — 
illustrating the fact that different 
forest cultures may develop dif- 
ferent pharmacological traditions 
even though the same natural 
product is available to them all. 

Pictures of tribal peoples 
often present them in fierce poses 
which do not really reflect their 
behavior. Today I put together a 
few slides to show you how the 
people I work with look when 
carrying out their everyday activi- 
ties. Not only are they vibrant 
and extraordinarily capable and 
intelligent; of note too is the fact 
that they are also largely free of 
most chronic health problems — 
heart disease, high blood pres- 
sure, diabetes, obesity — that 
plague people in western societies 
such as our own. Study of their 
diets and activity patterns may 
help us to better understand 
some of the factors that con- 
tribute to some of these western 
health problems. 

I feel that I am truly fortunate 
to have had the opportunity to 
live with people who are still re- 
moved from industrialization and 

have very few material goods. I 
have learned a great deal from 
them about what it means to be 
human when existing as a part of 
nature rather than living apart 
from nature as we western peo- 
ples live today. It is sad to think 
that many American schoolchild- 
ren know little about the natural 
world or grow up believing that 
owning many possessions will 
make them happy. 

In summing up, I would say 
that my education at Sweet Briar 
College, by teaching me how to 
think systematically and solve in- 
tellectual problems and by expos- 
ing me to the richness of 
different fields of thought, set me 
free to follow wherever my mind 
and interests would take me — 
trained as a young woman at a 
women's college to be fully confi- 
dent in my abilities. A good lib- 
eral arts education does for you 
what no other training can — it 
opens your mind to a wide range 
of different subjects and gives 
you full exposure to the grand 
sweep of human endeavor and 
accomplishment. Then this 
knowledge is carried away widi 
you on graduation to serve as a 
steadfast friend throughout your 
life, one who is always there to 
offer inspiration, insight, 
strength, comfort and hope. 

The many books I read at 
Sweet Briar, the lectures and dis- 
cussions I participated in, the life 
experiences I shared have stayed 
with me all of my adult life and 
have never failed to enrich it. 
Hopefully too, through my own 
research and teaching, I am able 
to return some of these benefits 
to my own students and continue 
the dynamic cycle of learning and

Margaret Leigh '73 
Named One of "Best 
Doctors in America" 

Margaret Leigh, a pedia- 
trician at the 
University of North 
Carolina School of Medicine in 
Chapel Hill, was recendy listed 
among The Best Doctors in 
America (copyright 1999 by 
Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, 
SC). The survey to compile the 
"Best Doctors" is based on peer- 
review evaluation. For the current 
listing, more than 30,000 doctors 
throughout the United States 
were asked to rate other doctors 
in their areas of specialization. 
Onlv those physicians who 
earned the consensus support of 
their peers were included in the 
final listing. 

Margaret is professor of pedi- 
atrics and chief of the Division of 
Pulmonary Medicine & Allergy 
at UNC-Chapel Hill. She is also 
director of the University's Cystic 
Fibrosis Care Center. A fellow- 
ship in pulmonology took 
Margaret to UNC-Chapel Hill 
in 1982, where she has continued 
her career, winning numerous 
honors including the Edward 
Livingston Trudeau Scholar 
Award (1985) and the Faculty 
Teaching Award from the pedi- 
atric housestaff (1993-94). 
Continuously listed in The Best 
Doctors in America since 1994, 
she is also listed in The Best 
Doctors in America: Southeast 
Region, and Who's Who in North 

Following her SBC degree in

chemistry, Margaret earned an 
M.D. from Eastern Virginia 
Medical School. Before joining 
UNC, she did an internship in 
pediatrics at Children's Hospital 
of Kings' Daughters in Norfolk, 
VA and her residency training at 
the University of Kentucky. 

Margaret has a distinguished 
record of professional service to 
the University and to numerous 
national organizations. To men- 
tion just a few of her commit- 
ments: she is a Fellow of the 
American Academy of Pediatrics 
and member of the American 
Board of Pediatrics, for which 
she chaired the Sub-board of 
Pediatric Pulmonology (1997- 
98). She serves on the planning 
committees for the Pediatric 
Assembly Program of the 
American Lung 
Association/ American Thoracic 
Society and for the annual North 
American Cystic Fibrosis 
Conferences. A frequent speaker 
and invited lecturer, she has pub- 
lished widely in professional 

journals including The New 
England Journal of Medicine and 
Pediatrics, and has contributed to 
many books and textbooks. 

She is the sister of Winborne 
"Winnie" Leigh Hamlin '58 and 
daughter of the late Maud 
Winborne Leigh '35. 

Sweet Briar is proud to see

ates, win this national recogni- 

Amy Woods '95 
Attends International 
Women's Conference 

Amy Woods was recendy in- 
vited by the U.S. Government to 
assist with a conference on inter- 
national women's issues held in 
Montevideo, Uruguay October 
1-3, 1998. One of the key speak- 
ers was The First Lady of the 
United States, Hilary Rodham 
Clinton. Entided "Vital Voices 
of the Americas: Women in 
Democracy," and co-sponsored 

by the U.S. government and the 
Inter-American Development 
Bank, the conference brought to- 
gether over 400 women from the 
region with the purpose of form- 
ing networks of women leaders 
who will actively participate in 
building democratic institutions 
in the developing countries of 
Latin America and the 
Caribbean. The conference was

inspired by the 1995 United 
Nations Fourth World 
Conference on Women in 
Beijing, China— a gathering 
which Amy, then a Sweet Briar 
student intern in the State 
Department's Bureau of 
International Organizations, 
helped to organize. 

Amy works for the nonprofit 
organization InterAction, a coali- 
tion of 164 international devel- 
opment, disaster relief and 
refugee assistance agencies. She is 
a program associate for 
IntexAction's Commission on the 
Advancement of Women, which 
works to incorporate gender eq- 
uity into member agencies' poli- 
cies and practices. This year, Amy 
has worked with InterAction 
members, government officials, 
and UN representatives to draw 
attention to the issue or gender 
in complex emergencies. A com- 
plex emergency, such as the situa- 
tion in the former Yugoslavia, has 
an enormous impact on families 
and the roles that men and 
women play within it. Relief or- 
ganizations are often over- 
whelmed by the disaster or 
outpouring of refugees and do 
not have the time or the tools to 
address gender issues. Through a 
series of workshops and a publi- 
cation, Amy and her colleagues 
have addressed gender integra- 
tion in disaster and refugee assis- 
tance in the context of health 
care, personal security, economic 
production, and education. 

Lee Minaidis 

"My student internships were 
a big part of the reason I was in- 
vited to the conference in 
Uruguay," said Amy. While a stu- 
dent at Sweet Briar majoring in 
international affairs and French, 
Amy sought a number of inter- 
national internships. As well as at 
the State Department, she held 
internships at the White House 
and the British-American 
Chamber of Commerce. During 
her junior year, which she spent 
at the University of Geneva with 
Cornell University's Study 
Abroad Program, she also in- 
terned at the International 
Catholic Migration Committee 
in Geneva. Following her gradu- 
ation from Sweet Briar (summa 
cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, with 
a listing in Who's Who in American 
Universities and Colleges), Amy 
entered Georgetown University's 
Graduate School of Foreign 
Service. While at Georgetown, 
she continued to intern, spending 
a year with the U.S. Committee 
for Refugees and a summer with 
the then-U.S. Ambassador to 
France, the late Pamela 
Harriman, at the embassy in 
Paris. In 1997, Amy earned her 
M.S. in foreign service from 

Amy credits Sweet Briar with 
giving her the chance to take 
leadership positions which she 
might not have had at a larger 
institution. From Sweet Briar's 
perspective, the College is proud 
that Amy made the most of 
every opportunity and has already 
reached an impressive level in her 
exciting career.

Representing the very best quali- 
ties of a Junior League member, 
her legacy continues to inspire 
everyone. This year's recipient 
has a record of volunteer service 
in the Richmond community 
spanning three decades. The re- 
cipient of the 1998 Barbara 
Ransome Andrews Award is 
Sally Twedell Bagley, who has 
touched the lives ot thousands in 
the community and inspired 
coundess volunteers and young- 
sters to strive for uncommon 

Every organization that Sally 
has come in contact with has 
benefited from her organizational 
skills, incredible energy, and posi- 
tive oudook. Sally has the un- 
canny ability to elicit the full 
potential of fellow volunteers or 
young piano students. Her re- 
sume is exhaustive: President of 
The Junior League ot Richmond 
1979-80, Chairman of the 
Mayo-Carter House Endowment 
Fund, President ot the Junior 
Board of the Children's Hospital, 
President of the Sweet Briar 
College Alumnae Club, President 
ot the Woman's Club and the 
Boiling Haxall House 
Foundation, Chairman ot the 
Development Committee tor the 
Council of the Virginia Museum, 
Liaison Committee of the 
Science Museum, Historic 
Richmond Foundation, 
Maymont Foundation, Board ot 
The Children's Museum ot 
Richmond, and most recendy she 
is Co-Chair of the Day of Stvle 
for the Virginia Museum 
Council. This is only a brief syn- 
opsis of her extensive involve- 
ment in the Richmond 
communitv. All of this in addi- 
tion to being a full-time wife, 
mother to two children, an avid 
traveller with her husband, and a 
self-emploved piano teacher 
teaching 30 students a week and 
producing a music recital every 
year! Anne Hardage describes 
her as "the original Energizer 
Bunny that keeps going and 

Sally has been instrumental in 
the major changes in The Junior 
League of Richmond which ulti- 
mately has benefited the entire 
Richmond community. As an ac- 
tive member, she helped relocate 
The Clothes Rack to its present 
location. Years of hard work at 
The Clothes Rack brought in- 
credible amounts of money to 
The Junior League's Communitv 
Chest which went direcdv to 
benefit the Richmond area. As a 
sustainer, she has been very active 
and even "Raised the Roof" with 
her campaign to raise money for 
the failing roof of the Mayo- 
Carter House and to help estab- 
lish an endowment fund tor the 
Mayo-Carter House. After help- 
ing with the relocation of The 
Junior League of Richmond's 
Headquarters to the Mayo- 
Carter House on Franklin Street, 
Sally recognized the critical need 
to revitalize downtown 
Richmond, and was able to get 
League Leadership to understand 
the historical significance of the 
Mayo-Carter House and its im- 
portance in working with other 
Franklin Street neighbors in en- 
couraging people and businesses 
to relocate in the downtown area. 
The Franklin Street Association 
has thrived under her guidance. 

Peg Freeman describes Sally 

as "an excellent leader and man- 
ager who motivates and encour- 
ages others to participate by 
recognizing their individual tal- 
ents and abilities. She inspires 
others with her energy and en- 
thusiasm. She is a good listener 
and a friend to everyone." 

A St. Louis native, Sally is a Phi 
Beta Kappa graduate of SBC with 
a major in music. She was an 
Ernilie Watts McVeigh Scholar 
(highest-ranking member of her 
class) and received the Theodore 
Presser Music Scholarship. She con- 
tinued her studies with a Woodrow 
Wilson Fellowship to the University 
of Virginia, earning a master's de- 
gree in music in 1970. 

Kathy Knox Ennis '60 
Ordained To Episcopal 

By Helen Gwinn Wallace '41 

In a beautiful and moving cer- 
emony on June 13 m , 1998 at St. 
Peter's Episcopal Cathedral in St. 
Petersburg, FL, six men and 
women were ordained to the 
Diaconate, among them 
Kathleen Knox Ennis, Sweet 
Briar Class of 1960. It was the 

culmination of a four-year 
process ot discernment, study, 
and work in preparation for ordi- 
nation, as well as many hours of 
service to her home parish of St. 
Monica's Episcopal Church in 
Naples, FL. Kathy 's family par- 
ticipated in the service, along 
with The Reverend John Adler, 
her mentor and sponsor, from her 
home church. A large group of 
her fellow parishioners traveled 
to St. Petersburg to lend their 

After graduation from Sweet 
Briar, Kathy, a Spanish major 
who spent her junior year in 
Spain, went to Colombia, South 
America, where she taught 
English as a second language. 
There she met and married Dick 
Ennis, who worked tor the 
United States government. In the 
following years they lived in 
Guayaquil, Ecuador, the 
Dominican Republic, Chicago, 
Virginia, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and 
finally Naples. During these 
years Kathy and Dick raised and 
educated four children. 

Kathy says she had felt drawn 
to the religious life for many 
years. As a lay person she was in- 
dispensable to her home parish 
and community. She has served 
as a Guardian ad Litem, and for 
several years was on the Rape 

Kathy Ennis (third from left) on Ordination Day 


Sweet Briar College Alumnae Magazine ■ Winter 1999, 


Crisis Team for Project Help in 
Collier County. During her years 
at St. Monica's, Kathy took com- 
munion to the sick, conducted 
services of Communion under 
Special Circumstances at adult 
living facilities and the chemical 
dependency unit at the local 
mental health center, did pastoral 
visiting, trained acolytes and 
chalice bearers, and served at 
weekday and evening Eucharists. 

When her youngest child 
graduated from college in 1993, 
Kathy called on her parish priest 
and inquired as to the options 
available to her in the religious 
field, among them the Diaconate. 
After prayer for guidance, Kathy 
was assured of her calling and 
undertook the preparation for her 
future as permanent deacon. 

The first year was year of dis- 
cernment, which included work- 
ing with a lav committee, 
interviews with the Commission 
on Ministry, psychological test- 
ing, a psvehiatric interview, and a 
work agreement with the super- 
vising priest. This period of dis- 
cernment was followed by three 
years of academic work and study 
and a third-year project, which 
for Kathy was campus ministry at 
Florida's newest state university, 
Florida Gulf Coast University. 
This is a joint Episcopal/ 
Lutheran (ELCA) ministry that 
is a vital part of United Campus 
Ministries at FGCU. Kathy is 
there in a pastoral capacity for 
students, staff, and faculty, takes 
part in campus lite and, with rep- 
resentatives of other denomina- 
tions, holds ecumenical prayer 
services four days a week. As 
Kathv explained, deacons repre- 
sent the "servant ministry" of the 
church, as Christ came "not to be 
served, but to serve." 

Kathy says, "Ordination Day 
was one of the happiest days of 
mv life." It was certainly a proud 
day for Sweet Briar College.

Praised for Museum 

Lifelong Supporter Leaves 
Mark At Point Of Honor 

Mina Wood Says Museum Will 
Always Hold A Place In Her Heart 

By Kristin Patterson 
The News & Advance 

Mina Wood remembers, as a 
little girl, hearing her mother and 
aunt talk about Point of Honor. 

She also remembers them 
helping to raise the $1,000 that 
would be needed to build a fence 
around the museum. 

She remembers when Point of 
Honor was sold to the city for $ 1 
and was used as a children's play- 
ground. She also remembers its 
doors being open to restoration 
in the late 1960s. 

As a lifelong resident of 
Lynchburg, Wood could not help 
but become involved with Point 
of Honor. 

After marrying a local boy, 
supporting him through law 
school and starting to raise a 
family, she began volunteering. 
She started as a member of the 
grounds committee in the late 
1970s, joined the board of man- 
agers in 1981 and advanced to 
chairwoman just four years ago. 

She has watched Point of 
Honor flourish. 

Now, Wood, 57, is preparing 
to retire from her time with 
Point of Honor, after helping 
raise more than SI, 000,000. The 
Bertha Green Webster Carriage 
House, the 19th-century period 
kitchen and the endowment to 
run those buildings have come to 
Point of Honor partially as a re- 
sult of Wood's efforts. She has 
also been instrumental in Point 
of Honor activities such as fall 
festivals, spring lectures on topics 
surrounding Point of Honor and 
shows and tours of the mansion. 

But she'll never toot her own

horn or let anyone else toot it for 

"We've all worked hard," 
Wood said of the board of man- 
agers. "And we've had so much 

Wood said she enjoyed 
tremendously the luncheons she 
helped prepare at Point of Honor 
and the other fund-raising events 
she helped with.

who hold Point of Honor in a 
very special place in their hearts," 
said Tom Ledtord, museum ad- 
ministrator for the City of 

Point of Honor is one of the 
things that, along with her hus- 
band and three sons, makes her 
swell with pride, she said. 

"It has an aesthetic value to 
it," she said. "We want to make it 
a dynamic place and get more 
people involved. We've always 
desired to involve more people in 
Point of Honor." 

And though she knows it's 
time to retire, Wood said she'll 
miss it. She does plan to stay in- 
volved with the museum. 

"I'll always be a friend to 
Point of Honor," she said.

Sweet Briar College Alumnae Magazine ■ Wi\ter 1999 



On the subject of the recent use 
of graphics in the magazine: 
"Quoth the [editor], 

While I commend your articles and 
alumnae news, I hasten to ask you to 
look again at your graphics. The use of 
half tones in the past issue (summer/fall 
'98) was so misused that these old eyes 
could not read many of the pages with- 
out a great deal of strain. ..especially 
President Muhlenfeld's message on the 
inside cover. 

What had been only a "snowflake" 
in the previous publication had be- 
come a blizzard throughout this issue. 
Overdone, and serving as an impedi- 
ment for communication, the policy of 
using half tones so indiscriminately 
should be reexamined. 

Another suggestion is to settle on 
more uniform size and type faces. The 
myriad choices such as the thin 
scripted picture captions and the re- 
duced print size of your feature articles 
do not add to the enjoyment of what is 
otherwise a fine publication. 

Thanks for the charming article 
called "Vignettes from a Time Capsule" 
in the winter/spring issue. ..not only 
was it engaging enough to share with 
friends, but the article was printed so I 
could read i( easily. 

— Helen A. Passano '55 

Helen, you definitely are not alone in your reac 
lions! We have had notes, letters, e-mails and, 
during Fall Council meetings, on-the-spot verbal 
messages about graphics and readability. We are 
mending our ways! — ed. 

I wanted to express my concern 
and dismay regarding the clip art you 
chose to serve as background for the 
Class Note section of the FallAVinter 
Alumnae Magazine. The graphics de- 
picted were wedding bells, a diaper 
pin, an engagement ring and a suit- 
case. None of these images connote 
Sweet Briar as being a school for suc- 
cessful, ambitious career women. 
Indeed, they further the stereotype of 
SBC as a place where one goes to re- 
ceive her "Mrs." Degree and nothing 

There are many alums, myself in- 
cluded, who have chosen the path of 
marriage and motherhood. There are 
also many alums, myself included, 
who have gone on to receive ad- 
vanced degrees from other institutions 
and successfully further their careers. 
More appropriate graphics would in- 
clude a diploma, a "quill and scroll" or 
a computer terminal. "Career neutral" 
graphics could include a blossoming 
rose or the SBC crest. 

I would strongly encourage young 
women today to attend Sweet Briar in 
order to receive a solid education. 
However, graphics such as the ones 
you chose send the message, however 
subliminal and unintentional, that 
Sweet Briar graduates marry and have 
babies, and that career-minded women 
"need not apply." In today's competi- 
tive market, such a message can only 
be a deterrent. I hope that, in the fu- 
ture, more thought is put into the 
graphics you choose when creating a 
publication that speaks for the college 
as well as its alums. 

— Wylie Jameson Small '83 

Many thanks for e-mailing your reaction to the 
graphics used behind the class notes. We hear 
you! And, having heard, we agree absolutely. We 
are sure you know that there was no slight in- 
tended. But thanks for pointing this out. — ed. 

Please pass on to the magazine edi- 
tor (hat the new design for the alumnae 
news pages is offensive to some of us. 
The pretty background images of dia- 
per pins, engagement rings, and cruise 
luggage does not strike any sort of rele- 
vance for those of us who are using 
our education and supporting our-

Mea culpa. Mea maxima culpa, -ed. 

Please tell Ann Whitley 

Please let Ann Marshall Whitley 
know how much I enjoy her Alumnae 
Magazine articles about Sweet Briar's 
past. She has a real talent for bringing 
it to life. There's such a wealth of inter- 
esting information in her articles, and 
her humorous and often lyrical writing 
style make for pleasurable reading. Her 
articles capture not only Sweet Briar's 
history, but the area's social history as 
well. I save all of her articles and also 
have copies of the booklets she's writ- 
ten. ..has Ann ever considered gather- 
ing her magazine articles together, 
organizing them, and publishing them? 
I wish she would. Please encourage 
her to keep writing. When she's gone, 
an historian and an institutional mem- 
ory will be gone and it will be a great 
loss. Until then, I want to enjoy her 
memories and historical research as 
often as possible. 

—Elizabeth Lindsey '86 

Ann has considered what you suggest, but first in- 
tends to write at least two more booklets; the next 
one, she tells us, will focus on Daisy, -ed. 

Favor to ask 

Hi! I love reading through all the 
SBC pages — they're great! However, I 
have a favor to ask: could the Book 
Shop do a page advertising Sweet Briar 
stuff (clothes, lefferson cups, etc.), with 
prices and ordering info? I understand 
that a catalogue would be prohibitively 
expensive, but my favorite pair of SBC 
gym shorts is disintegrating (after 12 
years!), and I don't know when I'll lie 
able to shop at SBC. ..Thanks for think- 
ing about this! 

— Robyn Bailey Orchard 
aka Bynnie Bailey'86 

We've passed your plea along! -ed. 

Excerpts from letters lo Alumnae 
Association Director Louise 
Swiecki Zingaro '80 and 
President Muhlenfeld from 
Katharine Crommelin Milton '62 

It was a thrill to receive the 
Distinguished Alumna Award for 1998 
and to visit the Sweet Briar campus 
again and see firsthand how dynamic 
the college is and what a superlative 
caliber of student is attending it... 

Sweet Briar has always been my fa- 
vorite institution of higher learning and 
I was pleased to see that in terms of 
beauty and elegance, the campus was 
still as lovely as my memories of it. But 
it is clear as well that you and your as- 
sociates have kept Sweet Briar on the 
fast track academically and it is right 
up there with other first-rate colleges 
and universities in terms of its ap- 
proach to learning and preparing stu- 
dents for life in the 21 st century. This 
impression was further strengthened at 
the lAlumnae Council] meeting Friday 
night when I heard details of adminis- 
trative and alumnae reports and plans 
for the future. 


I want to congratulate you on the 
last issue [Summer/Fall| of the 
Alumnae Magazine. I thought it was 
super. Keep up the good work. 

—Anna Chao Pai '57 

Excited about SBC's plan 

Hello from Atlanta! After reading 
the most recent issue of the Alumnae 
Magazine I am excited to hear about 
Sweet Briar's plan for its second cen- 
tury. I am a great proponent of historic 
preservation and it is something that is 
quite often taken for granted in this 
technological age in which we live. 
Both Dumont's and Harnsberger's 
comments epitomize the efforts of the 

administration and staff to preserve the 
past while enabling Sweet Briar to 
grow and continue to be the strong 
women's college that it is! When I read 
of these things I am most proud to be 
an alumna. ..Sweet Briar has been a 
wonderful place to meet friends and 
mentors alike. Hola, Hold! 

—Karen Hott '91 


It just about brought tears to my 
eyes and it most definitely brought a 
big satisfied smile to my face when I 
came home and saw my mail on the 
counter.. .it was my copy of the Sweet 
Briar Alumnae Magazine! 

It was quite an amazing feeling to 
see that rendition |of the new student 
center] on the cover and to realize that 
I was a part of creating it. ..WOW! 
Being somewhat distanced from the 
whole process and the ins and outs of 
all the happenings (which I do miss 
very much) has given me a renewed 
appreciation not just for this plan, but 
for the well-being of that special place. 

I wish I had the money so that we 
could start building now, but until then 
I promise to be a dedicated board 
member and help realize the great po- 
tential for Sweet Briar. 

—Kindle Samuel '98 

\ed. note: Kindle, who was president of the 
Student Government Association in 1997-98, was 
etei itil by her class to serve on SBC's Board of 

More Magazines! 

Was disappointed to hear that SBC 
has gone down to three Alumnae 
Magazines a year instead of four. Does 
this mean the Class Notes will be even 
more concise (practically encoded!) 
than they already are? Assume this is a 
cost-cutting measure. Has anybody 
considered charging for postage/print- 
ing? Or putting out a special appeal? 
I'd sure be glad to cough up the dough 
to return you to a four-a-year cycle. 
Your office has produced an outstand- 
ing publication that has been the high- 
light of my seasons for nearly three 
decades... Please keep up the good 
work and treat everyone in the Alum 
Office to a major pat on the back from 
this grateful grad! 

—Susan P. Scanlan '69 

Thanks for the good words Ve>— ne havi 
ered asking for voluntas contributions to help 
with magazine costs, but each time have decided 
not even to suggest it! We don't think alumnae 
should have to pay for their magazine. And, al- 
though we've moved to three issues, we have in- 
creased the size 01 each issue AboutClaSi

pertise! We would love to hear from 
those willing to serve as career advi- 
sors/networking contacts for SBC stu- 
dents. If your organization would 
consider hosting an Extern or Intern, 
or consider a permanent placement 

for a recent graduate, please let us 

An Externship is a 1-week placement 
of a junior or senior over Winter 
Break (program's debut January 4-8, 
1999) or Spring Break (March 1-8, 
1999). The student will complete an 
applir alion and be matched with an 
alumna in a geographic and career 
area of her choice. During Extern 
Week, the student will "shadow" her 
alumna to test a career field and geo- 
graphic area. This 5-day experience is 
strictly voluntary; no pay is expected. 
Externs are responsible for their own 
housing and transportation (unless the 
alumna is willing to house a student). 

Internships take place in the summer, 
for a 1-2 month period.

Alumnae Association Board 
Announces Winners! 

Congratulations to the 1998 winners of the Alumnae 
Association Board Challenge to increase percent of 
participation in the Alumnae Fund. 

The winners are: 

the Winston-Salem, NC Alumnae Club 
(President Becky Trulove Symons 79) 
with 68 % participation, and 

Region IV (NC & SC) 

(Chair Ashley Wilson Brook 79) 

with 48% participation. 

This program was introduced two years ago to encourage local 
alumnae clubs and regions to increase annual giving to the Alumnae 
Fund. The Association Board awards the club with the highest per- 
cent participation $1,000 for its endowed scholarship or a scholar- 
ship of its choice, and the region $1,000 for the Alumnae Daughter 

Kudos to the 1998 winners, and thanks to all who worked to in- 
crease their club/regional participation. 

For three years, SBC has shown a 43% nationwide participation rate 
in the Alumnae Fund. Several other women's colleges show percent- 
ages as high as 50%; the Association hopes its challenge will move 
SBC closer to that mark. 

Who will win in 1999? Even if your area has no club, your region 
can win if you help. Please accept the challenge: send your gift

Jovan De Rocco 

We have learned of the April 
1998 death of Jovan De Rocco, 
artist, writer, and former Sweet 
Briar art professor. He was 101 
years old. 

Professor De Rocco taught at 
SBC for 18 years, 1940-1958. His 
life personified the American 
dream: born in Belgrave, Serbia, 
and trained as an architect, he ar- 
rived at Ellis Island in 1 921 . He first 
worked as a hospital orderly, then 
found a job with New York archi- 
tect Lafayette Goldstone. He next 
joined the office of H. Van Buren 
Magnogle, famous architect, 
painter, sculptor, and author; this 
led to a commission to design the 
American Embassy building in 
Tokyo. Later he received a medal of 
honor from the Yugoslavian govern- 
ment for designing the facade of 
the Yugoslav Pavilion for 1 939's 
World's Fair. Studying painting and 
drawing at New York's Art Students 
League, he won a scholarship to 
the MacDowell Colony at 
Peterborough, NH where he met 
his wife of 53 years, Marcia. In 
1976, the De Roccos moved to 
Sanibel Island, FL where he de- 
signed the First Church of Christ, 

Less than a mile from SBC's 
campus is a home he designed in 
1956 for two faculty colleagues, 
poet and novelist Evelyn Eaton and 
concert pianist Iren Marik. 

Ella Gertrude Prior '29 

With great sadness we report 
the July 1 7 death of Gertrude (Cert) 

A native of New Brunswick, N|, 
and a philosophy major at SBC, she 
earned a Masters in psychology at 
the University of Pennsylvania 
(1934) and returned to the Sweet 
Briar community, living for many 
years across from campus on Old 
Stage Road. 

Known and loved by genera- 
tions of alumnae, Cert served the 
College in many capacities, work- 
ing in the Library, the Biology 
Department, and as assistant to the 
Farm Manager. She retired in 1970 
from the Book Shop staff. 

She was also an active volun- 
teer through the years, as a member 
of the Alumnae Board; class fund 
agent and secretary; vice president 
of the Amherst-Nelson Club; and 
chairman of the Alumnae Fund. 

Her many community activities 
included work with bird clubs, 
preservation societies, and church 
groups. An animal lover, Gert was 
co-founder of the Amherst County 
Humane Society, donating land for 
its animal shelter and pet cemetery. 

She is survived by two nieces, 
Lynn Prior Harrington '58 and Kate 
Prior Everett. Memorials may be 
made to the Amherst County 
Humane Society, Amherst, VA 

Dr. Ernest N. Kirrmann 

Dr. Ernest Nestor Kirrmann, a 
member of Sweet Briar's faculty 
from 1954-1970, died of heart fail- 
ure February 9, 1998. 

He began as Visiting Lecturer in 
German, was named Associate 
Professor in 1955, and Professor in 
1964. Alsatian by birth, he was 
schooled in Strasbourg before com- 
ing to the U.S. in 1924. Graduating 
from the College of the City of New 
York(B.S. 1930), he returned to 
Strasbourg to study at the 
University, then taught German and 
French at the Northfield Schools in 
Massachusetts and earned an M.A. 
(Columbia University 1933) and 
Ph.D. (Northeastern University 
1946). In 1953-54 he was a 
Fulbright Exchange Teacher in West 
Berlin, in one of the first groups of 
U. S. teachers sent to Germany 
after WWII. 

Besides many Sweet Briar fac- 
ulty committees, he served the 
Lynchburg area as interpreter to 
German families before the U.S. 
Immigration hearings, and in 1965 
was president of the Virginia 
Chapter of Teachers of German. 
Attributing his longevity to a rigor- 
ous swimming regimen, he cele- 
brated his 85 m birthday by 
swimming his 1,000 tn mile. 
Devoted to Sweet Briar and inter- 
ested in all campus activities, he is 
missed by the entire community. 

Loren Oliver 

Professor Emeritus Loren Oliver 
died at his home September 22, 
after a long illness. 

Born in Mt. Carmel, IL, he grew 
up in Indianapolis. After high 
school, he worked in the 
Accounting Department of General 
Motors and took night classes at 
John Herron Art Institute, later be- 
coming a full-time student on a full, 
five-year scholarship while working 
nights at G.M. He earned a B.F.A. 
in 1954 and received the 
Outstanding Senior Mary Miliken 
Award for six months travel in 
Europe, then studied with such lu- 
minaries as Mark Rothko, George 
Ricky and Clifford Still, earning a 
Masters from Tulane. 

For 34 years in the SBC Studio 
Art Department, Professor Oliver 
inspired generations of students and 
tripled the teaching staff. 
Continuing his own work, he won 
numerous prizes in regional, na- 
tional, and international exhibitions 
during an extensive career which 
culminated in 1993 with a retro- 
spective exhibition at SBC's Pannell 

The 1963 Briar Patch, dedicated 
to him, gives "Thanks for innumer- 
able things. ..for demanding and re- 
specting the best in us. ..for an 
intuitive wisdom. ..for a unison of 
sensitivity and sensibility. ..for 
awakening our curiosity." 

He is survived by his wife of 35 
years, Mary lane Schroder Oliver '62 
and son, Jasper Alexander Oliver II, 
of Winchester, VA. The family asks 
those wishing to send memorials to 
consider The Friends of Art.

Ciass Notes 


Secretary: Elizabeth Williams 

For the class of 1930, this year's mail 
has carried new notes. Josephine Reid 
Stubbs wrote, from Kansas, telling of a 
family parly for her 90th birthday. |o 
keeps in touch with Serena Ailes 
Stevens, in Mi< higan, In telephone, and 
Serena, a( live as usual, has rung in at 
91 . It's 90, now, for most of us, including 
your secretary (Baltimore, MD), Scootie 
Gorsline (Richmond, VA) and Sally Rea- 
hard (Indianapolis, IN). Sally wanted to 
know the number of survivors ol '30. We 
are 46, still here. Sally continues to be 
involved in many national and charitable 
projects— mainly environmental and 
preservationist Gladys Wester Horton's 
sight has continued to deteriorate, but 
that does not keep her from traveling 
with her daughter. Next trip — South 
America. Francie Harrison McGiffert 
iDuluth, MN) still lives alone in her big 
house, but manages well. She recalls 
"lovely, long-ago days at Sweet Briar, liv- 
ing in a charmed age in spite of war and 
depression." Elizabeth Carnes met Presi- 
dent Muhlenfeld in Tampa, FL — enjoyed 
hearing about the changing trends in ed- 
im ation. Wilhelmina Rankin Teter be- 
longs to a poetry group in Orlando, FL, 
and does a lot of violin playing. That's 

Your secretary did not hear from 
some "Regulars": they were probably on 
the golf course, at birthday festivities, or 
on a cruise ship. Full Speed Ahead! 


President: Mary Virginia Camp 

Secretary: Katharine Niles Parker 
Fund Agent: Margaret Smith 

Elizabeth Pinkerton Scott is still liv- 
ing at Bundoren Farm. No longer does 
much traveling but works in her garden. 
Liz Morton Forsyth runs an early nursery 
5( hool lor children in her hometown of 
Lynchburg. Margaret Smith Thomasson 
has two great-grandchildren and she and 
her husband still operate the store in 
Lynchburg and she bikes on the Ap- 
palachian Trail. Mary Virginia Camp 
travels and keeps in touch with her 
grandchildren who are all good students. 
Harel Lacey is the daughter of Elizabeth 
Chapman Lacey who operates the furni- 
ture More that her mother and father 
opened in Hopedale, MA. The 5/3/98 
Roanoke Times had a nice picture of and 
article about Betty Cocke Winfree who 

was given the Garden Club of America's 
Achievement Medal for her work in es- 
tablishing the Mill Mountain Park Wild- 
flower Garden more than 20 years ago. 
Peggy Huxley Dick is still traveling: the 
American West, Cape Cod, New Zealand 
(her 6th trip!) and plans for a 10/98 
China cruise. She is glad to have her son 
and daughter nearbv. Polly Rich Ewing 
moved to a retirement residence in Den- 
ver near her brother and lohn's daughter 
and family. She takes genealogical trips 
to England, Boston, and Salt Lake City. 
Margaret Densmore Whitney also works 
on genealogy and edits family letters. Mr. 
and Mrs. Franklin Parker have eight 
great-grandchildren, all girls except one. 


President: Lucy Gordan Jeffers 
Vice President: lean McKenney 

Secretary: Anne Benedict Swain 
Fund Agent: )ean Oliver Sartor 

Our class has lost four members 
since the last edition of the Sweet Briar 
News. Mary Treadway Downs died 
6/3/98, Mary Louise Saul Hunt died 
5/29/98, Gertrude Robertson Midlen 
died 5/8/98, and Betty Shuford Pa- 
genkopf died — date unknown. Yvonne 
Leggett Sanford told me that Tready and 
Fritz had just moved from the house they 
had lived in for many years to a small 
and cozy spot when it was discovered 
that she had lung cancer. 

Yvonne and Gordon attended his 
65th reunion at Yale. Her children are 
fine — Chip has a business in Mendham, 
N| and one of his sisters works for him 
— Diana I believe. Susie lives in New 
York. |anet Thorpe is busy, but it's the 
old routine of classes (both exercise and 
French) and volunteer work. She wishes 
she could report some dazzling trips! 

Henri Minor Hart's whole family is 
going to Miami for the oldest grandson's 
wedding. She has cute grandchildren, 
some nearby. Sadly another year has 
passed without their fun-filled reunion 
with Gracey Luckett Bradley Lillian 
Neely Willis, Lottie Lewis Woollen and 
Henri, but they plan to get together in 
Fall '98. They better come to our 60th in 
Spring '99 Ellie (Connie) Wallace Price 
is fine after a cataract operation. I'm sure 
lots of us have been down that road. 
Helen Cary Stewart is living with her son 
< an al 7377 West 85th St., Los Angeles, 
CA 90045-2456. Kay Bonsall Strong is 
already thinking of going to our 60th re- 
union in Spring '99. Good for you Kay — 
that's the way we should all be planning. 
Ellie George Frampton is thrilled that 
elder daughter Anne and her husband 

and son and daughter have moved to a 
farm 2 miles away in Keswick, VA. 
Daughter Richie in West Newton, MA is 
coming for a visit after daughter Amy 
graduates from h.s.; she's going to Berke- 
ley Dutch Hauber Crowe loves living in 
Newark, DE, as all of her old friends re- 
turned there. They have a great time with 
bridge and Country Club. She sees her 
children often — Terry in New lersey and 
Patty in Columbia, MD. Claffy Claflin 
Williams says her monotype printing is 
an exciting new adventure. She is still 
showing paintings — at Maine Coast 
Artists; Rockport, ME; at Boston 
Atheneum; a group show at South Shore 
Art Festival; and at Chinese Culture Insti- 
tute. And with all that she takes care of 
her husband and at times one of 1 1 
grandchildren Jeff Weller Pearson en- 
joys life at Westminster Canterbury of the 
Valley in Winchester, VA. The only other 
Briarite there is |o Sutton '38. left' says 
the surroundings are beautiful, people 
nice, and the staff efficient, pleasant and 
helpful. (I could say all those nice things 
about our Retirement Community.) Best 
of all are the frequent visits from children 
and grandchildren, and she visits daugh- 
ter Sally in Luray. Gussie Saul Farrier 
lunched with Sarah Belk Gambrell in 
Charlotte and Sarah reminded her that 
our 60th reunion will be in Spring '99. 
Gussie was in Princeton for grandson 
lack Edwards' graduation, and had din- 
ner with )ane Lewis Kingsbury who was 
visiting there, lane is moving to Albany 
to be near a daughter. Son Dr. R. Thomas 
Edwards and Ebbie '64 have two lovely 
granddaughters. Gussie's sister Mary Lou 
Saul Hunt '35 died 5/29 after a long ill- 
ness — Alzheimer's. Betty Barnes Bird 
continues to search for geologic samples 
in spite of eye problems, takes dance 
lessons and went rafting on the Colorado 
River. Betty wishes her interest in geol- 
ogy had blossomed earlier when she was 
traveling around the world with her late 
husband, William. No rock hunting in 
summer in AZ. She swims and tries to 
keep cool, and listens to Talking Books. 
Lucy Gordan (effers hopes we'll have a 
good turnout for our reunion. She says if 
anyone has ideas of how we should cele- 
brate, please pass them on either to the 
Alumnae Office at College or to Lucy at 
40 East 88th St., Apt 9F, NY, NY 10128. 
She plans an Oct. trip to England with 
the American Friends of The Georgian 
group. |ulie Saunders Michaux sounds 
pleased to be in the same house doing 
the same things. She's still busy with her 
church, the Sheltering Arms Hospital, 
and Garden Club. And Julie is another 
who is counting on going to the 60th! 
Ann Park says her spelling is getting 
worse, to say nothing of her hearing. Ann 

keeps in touch with Lucy Gordan letters 
and Katherine Richards Delancey Lillian 
Neely Willis and Peter sold their home in 
U.niieshuin I , \ anil mmed into a re 
tirement cottage at Brandon Wilde in 
Evans, GA. ). O. Oliver Sartor had nu- 
merous TIA's (small strokes) and has to 
take medicine. Still, she's planning to 
come to our 60th! Sarah Tarns Kreker 
joined the SBC 50th anniversary trip 
commemorating the lunior Year in 
France. For her it was a 60th anniversary 
C37-'38l They were treated royally and 
enioved reli\ ing her youth al Tours in the 
Chateau Region and in Paris. Lee Mon- 
tague Watts also joined the group Julia 
Ridgely Howe enjovs life in a retirement 
community in Whitefield, NH. She does 
pool exercises and still writes her weekh 
column in the Coos County Democrat. 
Ned and I enjoy our retirement spot only 
20 minutes from Ted and his family. His 
wife Ruth and the boys. Ned (16) and 
Bob (13) spent 5 1/2 weeks in Italy, Mu- 
nich, Paris, southern England, and Scot- 
land. Ted flew over for the segment in 
Paris and southern England. So we en- 
joyed the trip vicariously through post- 
cards and phone calls. Speaking of trips, 
let's all plan to go to our 60th reunion. 
Dates are: May 7-9, 1 999. Our one sad 
event of the year was the death of my 
sister Carol 11/97. That was hard, espe- 
cially since we lost our brothers five and 
eight years ago.

The following cards should get you 
out of your rocking chairs! Margaret 
Leonard Proctor writes from Baltimore, 
"lourneyed up the headwaters of the 
Amazon in February and thence to 
Machu Pichu. On to Naples, FL for a 
haircut en route to a grandson's wedding 
in Toronto. Plus painting, church work 
book and garden clubs. Daphne With- 
ington Adams: "Still in my house in Rye 
trying to keep it and the garden in good 
shape in spite of poor knees. Am show- 
ing weekly films at the local retirement 
home, manning the reception desk at the 
Presbyterian Church, exercises in water 
classes at the "Y", Church Hand Bell 
Choir. Nancy Davis Reynolds is in her 
house in Asheville, now a widow, but 
friends and family nearby. "I have been 
taking courses in the College for Seniors 
at UNCA, went to France with the group 
in June. Bridge, book clubs, working in 
the hospital... a class on Dante's inferno. 
Also from Asheville, Ruth Hensley Cam- 
blos writes: "losh taught a class at UNCA 


Sweet Pri\r College Alumnae Magazine ■ Winter 1999 

College lor Seniors in Ornithology with 
field trips. In May we drove to UVA tor 
his Med Class Reunion, with an 
overnight stop at beautiful SBC. I took 
nn M,n Queen dress to the SB Museum. 
Ann Whitley said there is a big interest in 
May Day, and that they still have the 
1907 May Pole." In Charlottesville the} 
saw Betsy and Mike Tremain, and in 
Asheville, Emory Gill Williams and 
Canky. In )une the Tremains, Gege and 
Bill Hall Sudie and Bill Hanger, Betty 
Lippincott, Martha Buchanan 
Wadsworth. Ann and Tom Potterfield 
and Helen Sanford had a great reunion 
in Annapolis. The Pofterfields were just 
back from France and Helen from Eng- 
land and France. Debbie Wood Davis is 
full time in real estate and always busy 
with art history courses. I spent a few 
days with her in NY in March and we 
had lunch with Cynthia Abbott 
Dougherty. Afterwards crossed the street 
to see The Merchant's House 29 E, 
Fourth St., a very interesting 1832 mu- 
seum whose curator is our Margaret 
Kelly's daughter. It was lovely to see the 
bond she and Cynthia have. Barbara Bull 
Peake is in Europe trying to connect with 
her son who is in Bosnia with the Red 
Cross. Cynthia describes her summers in 
Quogue, Long Island as "like the picture 
of the author inside the cover, (she) lives 
quietly in the country with her cat and 
roses." Mary Alice Bennett Baumberger 
at home in Geneva in luly — freezing, 
snowy peaks etc. Marion Robbins 
Alexander has been in Portugal and 
Spain where she saw Frances Gregg Pe- 
tersmeyer; and in Linville NC.where she 
saw Alice Williams Glover. Sweet Briar's 
lunior Year in France 50th Anniversary 
Trip was superb. QE2Aburs/Paris, I 
couldn't resist. We were overwhelmed 
and so proud of the college and the wide 
acclaim given this program. Magically all 
doors opened to us — private homes and 
galleries and official splendor. In the 
Calamity Department, Diana Green Hel- 
frich of Vineyard Haven, ME wins the 
gold medal as a good sport, with lessons 
for us all. "Managed to total 3 cars in 
one week and lost my license too! The 
therapy after my second knee surgery did 
not do well— the reason why my foot 
stuck on the accelerator and the accident 
followed". She works part time "at the 
Bookstore" and has interesting descen- 
dants, one at the Goddard Space Center. 
Barbara Ripley Furniss writes, "Todd and 
I are just back from his reunion at 
Phillips Andover-Abbott. Diana was in 
charge of the Abbott group and carrying 
on bravely in spite of severe facial 
bruises from a car accident. After reunion 
we had a visit with Jeanne Sawyer Stan- 
wood in her lovely Kennebunk home." 
And then a card from Jeanne saying what 
fun it was and sending her love. This job 
of mine isn't all bad! Happy Retirement 
News begins with our freshman year 
twins Betty Brown Borden and Dick and 
Mary Brown Griggs and Bayliss. After 

careers taking them all over the world, 
they are together in Santa Barbara at 
Casa Dorinda. iMary Law's husband, Stu- 
art Taylor, now a widower, also lives 
there. I see him occasionally as his jour- 
nalist son and family live near me.) 
Ginny Thaver Boothby is in a condo in 
Creenbrae CA ne\t to Betsy Chamber- 
lain! Margaret Preston Moore sends love 
from Tallahassee, FL, where she has set-

"Plugging along. Have sold 6 novels and 
2 novelettes so far." Blessings on every

point you but there is no earthly way to 
list them, except Diana Stout Allen and 
Richard's grandson John Jennings, a 
lawyer in Memphis who is engaged to 
Leslie Brock, a Sweet Briar graduate! 
Let's try something different in the 1999 
letter. How about writing specific memo- 
ries of SB. In four years the Depression 
ended and WWII circled the globe. We 
are curiosities of the distant past, walking 
around in our tennis shoes. Let's collect 
some of the pieces of the world we 
shared in those years.

This letter is being written after our 
Glorious 50. Our class should feel in 
closer touch than we have in years! 
Forty-two of us returned with 1 8 spouses 
and lots of conversation and communi- 
cation has taken place. All of your re- 
sponse cards saluted the gathering espe- 
cially the work done bv Pottsie and her 
committee. The highlight was our ab- 
solutely overwhelming Class Gift of 
$285,925 under the leadership of Martha 
Mansfield Clement, Peggy Sheffield Mar- 
tin, and Peggy Addington Twohy. We did 
not know the huge success of our cam- 
paign until the night before it was an- 
nounced. We also learned that the chil- 
dren of several deceased classmates — 
Connie Tunnell Bond Caroline Rankin 
Mapother, and Ann Samford Upchurch 
— wanted to contribute. We sang with 
such enthusiasm and volume under our 
special song leader Harriotte Bland 
Beckwith that you could almost see "the 
golden stairs"! Wayne Stokes Goodall 
and your scribe worked on pink and 
green ribbons which we wore around 
our necks centered with a large button 
with our yearbook picture that our Presi- 
dent Pottsie had made. Then after all her 
noble efforts she missed being in our 
class picture. We missed these class-

Whyte and William are a bit slowed 
down but no less tuned in and interested 
in their friends' activities. Wayne Stokes 
Goodall says |enny Belle might even 
write a book of SBC happenings if any- 
one is interested. We think of Jenny 
Belle's lacy, be-ribboned petticoats 
whenever we see Patty Traugott Rouse 
wearing one of those elegant Museum 
Creations which she created. Although 
we did not hear from Martha Rowan 
Hyder many saw her fabulous home in

good friends Jane Miller Wright and 
Howard.) The Wrights plan to sail to 
Mai hu Pichu and the west coast of S. 
America, lane writes of the "rosy glow of 
pride" she felt after Reunion. 

From cards and scrapbooks ... Liz 
Barbour McCrea met Mat 23 years ago 
when they both worked in Australia. Her 
mother is still alive at 102. Judy Blakey 
Butler still effervescent as ever though 
she has lost two husbands, has memories 
of her travels. Meon Bower Harrison and 
Arch feel most blessed about their life 
and their children. They have grandchil- 
dren who win ribbons for their Nubian 

goats at the county fair in NH. Vi White- 
head Morse beat the birds to her sour 
cherry tree so she could make jam, pies, 
and frozen foods. Marjorie "Smittie" 
Smith Smithey (wheel) reported her one 
day back seeing former camp and col- 
lege friends was a wonderful experience. 
Martha Davis Barnes fell at reunion "that 
we personified Frances Weaver's book 
title The Girls With Grandmother 
Faces— a lively busy bunch of ladies". 
Betsy Plunkett Williams captioned a 
photo with, "How fresh-faced we were 
54 years ago — the lines reflect the pas- 
sage of time, but the hope and the confi- 
dence in the future remain". Vickie 
Brock Badrow persuaded her Ned to 
take time from volunteering at home and 
he loved being at the reunion. Can you 
believe that our Ewy Sharp Vldal is fin- 
ishing up her second term as president of 
the Rotary Club of Mauricetown, NJ?

Kelly and Dan's befriending two Cambo- 
dian refugee students in their home in 
1986 led to the starting of the Kelly 
Foundation. It has nurtured some 75 
young people from minority groups. For 
more information about Nancy's work,

law school. Judy Perkins Llewellyn had 
plans for travel in Greece and S. Amer- 
ica. Harriotte Bland Beckwith and Al 
had to hop in their plane and fly away 
ahead of predicted storms so we did not 
get to really share the touching song and 
poems our gifted song leader had written 
for us to sing. 

Patty Damron |oy from La |olla, CA 
(May to Oct.) and Alexandria (Nov. to 
May) writes of the loss of her only sister 
in a terrible fire. Our thoughts and sym- 
pathy do go to her. Avery Draughon has

tive in my community". Liz Hooks 
Richards after years as a volunteer lists 
her current biggest challenge is "on the 
goll i ourse in Key Largo". Bess Pratt 
Wallace successfully battled a brain 
tumor and now reports "Life's challenges

life with lots of baby-sitting and a sum- 
mer trip to Washington and Lee to take a 
course and a possible quick trip over the 
hills to the Patch. Nancy Moses Eubanks 
writes of her four "joyful, happy years"; 
and mentions that she had two sisters at 
SBC class of '34 and '41 who are now 
deceased. Sally Smith Williams spent

in the Chesapeake Bay. The Williams will 
cruise the Mediterranean this fall. 

Pam Terry from DC had planned to 
come to reunion until her granddaughter 
announced the impending arrival of 
Pam's first great grandchild in Houston. 
Pam rescues and rehabilitates abandoned 
animals in Rock Creek Park and finds 
homes for them. She translated a second 
book from Spanish to English and plans 
to write one of her own. She spends time 
in Dallas and would love to contact SBC

tour in Provence and your scribe is trying 
to re-learn how to ride a bicycle with 21

Our hearts were heavy when we re- 
alized how many classmates have died 
recently. I sent the program from the 
Memorial Service held in our beautiful 
Chapel and have been thanked by the 
families ol Ann Harris Bellows, Ann Pax- 
son Gail, Sylvia Schively Robertshaw 
and Kax Berthier McKelway. We under- 
stand that lohn McKelway has died too. 
Our thoughts have gone out to room- 
mates Ginny Wurzbach Vardy, Bea 
Backer Simpson, Jane Shoesmith as well 
as to the families. Many of you mention 
returning for our 55th in 2003. May we 
suggest you "do lunch" with nearby 
classmates, have regional "mini" re- 
unions and keep fit as you think ahead to 
2003! Cheers!

discovered there is a direct, but inverse, 
relationship between money (a job) and 
free time. Diana Weeks Berry: My Fresh- 
man year roommate Judy Clippinger 
Chavchavadze passed away last fall. She

gie Mohlman and Bud Deglar who live

Tom Donohue raved about their trip to 
Africa with this terrific couple. I wrote

had a fabulous trip to Botswana and 
Zimbabwe. The Donohues plan a spring 
Caribbean sailing cruise with Karen 
Looker and Tim Hyde. Sally Gammon 
Plummer spent 3 weeks in England. 
She's doing an Elderhostel on Lewis and 
Clark in MT — loves her retirement.

mal art in decorating is still hot. My busi- 
ness was up 40% last year and it's a 
great way to get back to Africa for more 
research. Please stop by The Pink House 
Gallerv when in Charleston— maybe I'll 
be there too! Plan your trip to the 
foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in 
May. Let's dazzle them with our turnout!

We had a splendid 15th reunion with 
about 20 in attendance. For those unable 
to come, it would be impossible to recre- 
ate for you the ambience. Many of us 
lost our voices from laughing and talking 
non-stop. I recall conversations with 
Nancy McDowell and Sue Cansler )ones 
about the watershed i hanges in Ameri- 
can society that were emerging as we 
graduated. Someone should study us, we 
decided, and maybe we'll do it our- 
selves Nancy continues her clinical so-

Sweet Briar College 


Honor Role of Donors 


I am pleased to report our fiscal year-end results. The 1997-98 
total cash flow for the Development Program stands at 

We are extremely grateful for the generosity of our alumnae, 
parents, and friends to the unrestricted Annual Fund. Annual 
Fund receipts topped $1.8 million for the first time 
($1,802,498), an increase of $125,000 over last year. An 
unusually strong 50th Reunion Gift effort (Congratulations 
and thank you again, Class of 1948!) set a record with the 
largest-ever Reunion gift to the College. 

Analyzing the year's success, we credit: 

• Strong unrestricted giving. In addition to the Annual Fund, 
Sweet Briar received an unrestricted gift of $108,000 from 
the Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges. 

• Bequests and life-income gifts totaling $1,243,723. 

• Endowment gifts of $548,360 received from pledges to 
the Audrey Teal Betts Challenge for the Riding Program. 

Ongoing thanks to each one of you who, through your loyalty, 
dedication, and enthusiastic support, has made possible this 
good news. Our success continues to come from the commit- 
ment of individual donors. You have heightened our sense of 
excitement as we look toward Sweet Briar's Centennial.

Kathleen Garcia Pegues 71: Completing the Connection 



liana Fletcher Williams was a visionary," says Kathv Garcia Pegues. 
"Her wishes for the College were not specific. She was willing to let the fu- 
ture play out, trusting the women here and now to continue her legacy. 

"I have no idea what the future holds for Sweet Briar. But, unlike Miss 
Indv, I can look back and see what the College has done for me, for my stu- 
dents, and for mv daughter. I have every reason to trust the traditions of this 
institution. Including Sweet Briar in my will was not a huge leap of faith, 
it was an informed vote ol confidence." 

Kathv was aware ol Sweet Briar long betore she ever set foot on cam- 
pus. Her mother was secretary to Margaret Banister '16. Miss Banister, who 
established Sweet Briar's office of public relations in 1932, was the niece of 
the College's third president, Meta Glass. 

"When mv father went to medical school, my mother went to work in 
the Pentagon, in the public relations office for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Her 
boss was Margaret Banister. During primary-school holidays, I would go to 
this enormous office and Miss Banister would let me play on the typewriter. 
I can remember her saying to my 

I could continue to do all the things I enjoyed. I could play hockey, partic- 
ipate in theatre, and run tor student government. I didn't have to choose. I 
could do it all. 

"The question I asked myself at that point is die same question I ask my 
students today: Why are you going to college? If you're going to college to fully 
develop your potential and resources, you need to be in a place that treats 
you as an individual. It's an approach that, while not unique to Sweet Briar, 
is still rare among academic institutions. 

"I have seen some of my best and brightest students fall through the 
cracks at large universities. On the other hand, the eleven students I en- 
couraged to attend Sweet Briar have all managed to distinguish themselves. 
They've won awards, received grants to do research, gone abroad, played 
sports, had significant internships, and appeared in the College's publica- 
tions and web pages. Even more important, they've all become incredibly 
confident voung women."

in the midst of a happy Sweet Briar 

mother: 'Now, Joy, you know vou 
must bring Kathleen to Sweet Briar.' 

"I have always had fond memo- 
ries of Miss Banister as a grand- 
motherly figure. Her aunt, Miss 
Glass, was Lincolnesque: tall, im- 
posing, and very charming. Miss 
Glass had two wonderful scotty dogs 
at her home in Charlottesville. As a 
little girl, I was cra2y about those 
dogs and dreamed of owning one 
myself. But, as delightful as these 
childhood impressions were, they 
left me with a very funny picture of 
what Sweet Briar might be like. 
When I was 16, I was not particu- 
larly interested in visiting the
